Curious Lion Wants To Play With Baby

Rumble / Dogs & PuppiesEvery kid wants to go to the zoo. Having the opportunity to see all those animals up close and personal, but without the fear of actually getting attacked by one can be very educational. Even as adults, this simple pleasure has not changed.

Some exhibits allow visitors to interact with the animals through glass panes, especially with the apes, orangutans and big cats. Many zoo park visitors have professed that they have experienced some truly profound moments at those enclosures.

But watch what happens when this mom placed her baby in front of the lion enclosure. One of the lionesses approached the glass pane and looked intriguingly at the child as if to sniff it out, but all of the sudden she opened her huge jaws and tried to snap it up! Whoa!

We cannot be sure whether she thought it as one of her young, seeing how it is dressed in a fluffy outfit, or maybe she wants to play with the tiny thing, but one thing is for sure – we are glad that there were several inches of glass between them. The mother giggles with excitement, probably because she feels safe with her child on this side of the enclosure.

This is probably the most extraordinary moment caught on camera! And the best part from this amazing video is that this tiny baby is completely oblivious to what is going on around him. His mom put him on the floor at the zoo in front of the lion exhibit. He is sitting right in front of the glass and you can see the lioness prowling on the other side of the glass. Some other kid would be crying so much right now, but not this baby, he is so cool!

What do you think, are the visitors taunting the animal in this manner? Check out a similar interaction with young lions, only this time it is a grown, silly man!

User 'ShareBear' claims that her husband makes everything more fun, as is evident in this video. Watch as he gets on all fours and runs back and forth, causing several younger lions to chase him around. How awesome is that?

Usually, when we go to the zoo we just observe the animals, rarely engaging in fun stuff like this. That makes this moment a very special one, and also very fun!

The lionesses clearly have fun watching the man imitating them, and run around following his every move. One of them is even trying to say hello by jumping at the window. Some viewers might say that he is taunting the animals for being held in captivity, but with so little to entertain the giant cats, we think it is quite okay that he tried to have some harmless fun with them.

Some kids love going to the zoo. However, not just kids! Adults love to go to the zoo too. It's really amazing to see the great and amazing animals and enjoy your favorite exhibits. Many zoo visitors experience some pretty profound moments with some animals.
