Lions are the kings of the jungle. They're fierce and not the type you want to mess with. They do what they need to do to protect and provide for their loved ones, especially their baby cubs.
So you can imagine how confused this lion at the zoo was when it saw a baby cub on the other side of the glass. Only, this baby cub looked slightly different from the ones the lion is used to seeing. This baby cub for some reason had different facial features and opposable thumbs!
An adorable toddler decided to visit Zoo Atlanta in the US while wearing a lion cub costume.
The lion cub's godfather, Cami Fanning, posted the video and it instantly went viral.
Fanning 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.”
“The lions were immediately interested in our little lion cub, and it wasn’t long before they couldn’t stand their curiosity any longer and came right up to the glass.”
The godfather added, “Aryeh was completely unfazed and interacted with the lions for a few minutes… It was incredible! Definitely a great memory from our first little godfamily outing.”
Check out part 1 and part 2 of the video below. You can see that the lion is terribly confused and it's adorable.
