From the time we arrive on the planet and, blinking, step into the sun, there’s more too see than can ever be seen – more to do than can ever be done.
High on that list is to visit a zoo. Zoos have all sorts of fun animals like lions and tigers and bears. Oh my! What could be so bad about a big ol’ jungle cat? Well, sometimes they try to attack you.
Watch below as a lion at a Japanese zoo gets into a staring contest with a little boy. As the boy gawks at the lion, the lion locks eyes with the boy – staring, focusing, waiting.
As the boy turns his back, the lion sees an opening and pounces at the boy. He breaks into a stride, lunges, and – hits his nose on the glass.
