Baby visits zoo dressed as a lion cub. Suddenly, lion thinks he’s one of their own

Little 11-month-old Aryeh loves lions. Which makes sense because his name means lion in Hebrew. So, when Aryeh’s godparents took him to the zoo his mom made sure to pack his lion costume. When the zoo lions finally came out of their den, they didn’t know what to make of the fact that one of their own kind was on the other side of the glass.

The lions became curious of the little cub and walked right up to him as Aryeh pressed against the glass.

“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.,” said Aryeh’s godparent. “Aryeh was completely unfazed and interacted with the lions for a few minutes.”

Eventually, after lurking around a bit, one of the lions placed his paw on the glass to try and touch the little baby lion on the other side.

“We took some pictures and videos before moving along as the lions started getting a little worked up and we didn’t want to make them too anxious,” his godmother said.
