As people await St. Valentine's Day when everyone feels like expressing their love, an Indian Forest Service officer has posted an interesting video of a lion perhaps to showcase that even animals value affectionate expressions.
The video shows what happens when a lion named Juptier recognises his caregiver. It truly reflects that affection is not limited to any species.

This video has gone viral and netizens are expressing their heartfelt emotions.
One netizen wrote, "I think as a human species we are overrated, animals are way better to understand emotions than most of humans". Another wrote, "Indeed hug has nothing but affection and sincerity".

These living beings have the heart and the mind and the soul at the same place. With Human beings, the heart, the mind, the words are never aligned at all; forget the soul.— Mani Mamallan (@manimamallan) February 12, 2021
