A tot with the aspirations to become the next King of the jungle met with His Highness at the ZOO and the result is making wild rounds online! The incredible footage shows Aryeh, an 11-month-old baby from Atlanta, Georgia, standing outside the lion enclosure at the Atlanta ZOO, with the lion checking the funny looking cub on the other side of the glass pane. What will happen next?

The brave little lion cub places his hands on the glass as the lion approaches and before you know it, he lifts his huge paw and puts it on the glass too, as if to give Aryeh a high five! When the ‘lion cub’ starts crawling along the window ledge, the fascinated lion follows him on the other side. That is so incredible!

It was Aryeh's godfather who posted the video on Live Flare and wrote: 'My close friend and I took our 11 month old godson to Zoo Atlanta for a little god family outing. Our godson's name is Aryeh, which means lion in Hebrew, so his mom packed his lion costume.

'It was a pretty cold day so when we first arrived, the lions weren't out yet. We saw the rest of the animals and stopped by the lion exhibit on our way out. When we saw that the lions were out and put Aryeh in his costume, thinking we'd snap a picture of him with the lions in the background.”

This proves that having your camera out on standby is always a good idea when you bring a child to see the beasts in the ZOO. You never know what might happen next!
