An 11-month-old boy dressed as an adorable lion came face-to-face with a real lion and the meeting didn’t faze him at all.
Aryeh, from Atlanta, US, had been taken to the zoo by his godparents, who didn’t realise he’d be so fascinated by the lion enclosure.
The baby kneeled on the ledge and put his hands up on the glass separating him from the lion, not flinching with the lion put his paw up.
Aryeh even crawled along the ledge when the lion moved so they were side-by-side the whole time.
“The lions were immediately interested in our little lion cub, and it wasn’t long before they came right up to the glass,” Cami Fanning, one of Aryeh’s godparents wrote on YouTube on 10 December.
“Aryeh was completely unfazed and interacted with the lions for a few minutes.
“It was incredible.”
