LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - He's less than three weeks old, but Ashur the lion cub continues to dominate the attention at Ellen Trout Zoo.

The zoo released a video today of the cub with a little case of the hiccups.

Ashur was born on July 15 but zoo staffers were surprised to find he came out with a white color. He is only the second cub born with that color in any zoo in America.

Ashur got his name after a vote from the public conducted by the zoo.
