A toddler who was innocently chatting away to a lion through the glass of his zoo enclosure had no idea what would happen when he turned his back.

The boy, said to be from Japan, was staring at the lion who was sat quietly on the other side of his enclosure.

When the toddler turned around to talk to the person filming, the lion took that as his chance to sprint forward and pounce. 

He leapt up onto the glass and began furiously scratching against it. 

The boy was surprisingly chilled about the lion getting so close, as was the child in the background who laughed it off.
