  Original Published: 10/8/2013 A robot takes on rugged terrain. A candy shop makes a massive peanut butter cup. And a rare white lion cub makes his debut. Melisa Raney has today's Take A Look At This. It's not a clip from the latest sci-fi flick, it's L-S-3, a four-legged robot designed by Boston Dynamics. They say it can travel 20 miles on rough terrain carrying 400 pounds. Boston Dynamics engineers have also come up with Wildcat, which they say has the ability to bound and gallop at about 16 miles-per-hour. And, just in time for Halloween, a Vernmont candy shop attempts to make the largest peanut butter cup. You're looking at more than 229 pounds of chocolate and peanut butter. They're still waiting on official word to see if it's a record-setter. Now, for your daily dose of cute, take a look at this little guy. The rare white lion cub made his first public appearance at a Serbian zoo over the weekend. He was born Sept. 27.
