A baby dressed in a lion costume was captured bonding with a real lion through the glass of its enclosure in a zoo in Georgia, USA.
Cami Fanning posted a video to YouTube showing her 11-month-old godson named Aryeh, “lion” in Hebrew, peering through the glass of the Zoo Atlanta lion enclosure on Friday while dressed in his infant-sized lion costume.
The video shows the baby coming face-to-face with one of the adult lions, with only the few inches of glass between them.
Aryeh places his tiny hand on the glass, and a few seconds later the lion does the same.
The lion seems as fascinated by Aryeh, even following when the youngster crawls away along the ledge outside the glass wall.
