The footage in which a child dressed as a lion cub walks around the zoo, has captivated many users.
In the footage, it is understood that the lions mistook the baby for their “relative”.
We will tell you how the idea of such an interesting experiment came to the relatives.
This story takes place in Atlanta. The godmother of 11-month-old Aryeh decided to use the weekend and took the baby to the zoo.
The woman herself recalls:
“It was quite chilly outside, so we dressed Aryeh in a warm lion cub suit. The baby is comfortable in it. We walked around the zoo, but near the enclosure with lions we noticed their anxiety and even some confusion. We immediately prepared the camera.
At first, the lions just walked around the enclosure, looking at our baby, but then they came close to Aryeh. The next moment, the paw of the predator and the palm of the baby were pressed against the glass. It looked amazing, we didn’t even expect to get such interesting shots.”
It is worth noting that nothing threatened the baby, because there was a thick protective glass between the child and the lions.
After the video hit the network, in a few days it gained more than 10,000 views, at the moment there are already more than 700,000.
Many users believe that the lions mistook the baby for a small lion cub, which is why they became interested in him.
By the way, the name Aryeh in Hebrew means “lion”. Perhaps wild animals really recognized their baby in Aryeh?
