This is giving me the creeps! Brave little kid though! #849379

I'm sorry if this gave you the creeps. I guess it would me, too, if I didn't know that there is an inch thick (at least)lexan window pane between the little girl and the lion. No way would I take a photo of a child in a dangerous situation. She was totally enamored with this lion. Her dad was with her, but no one I knew. If you look closely, you can see the steam on the window from her breath. I hope it doesn't still give you the creeps. :-) #5460914

Oh, I knew there was glass...it still gives me the creeps....I think it's the lion's expression that does it.... #5461705

Ok, just wanted to be sure. Thanks. Actually, someone was walking the zoo dog in the courtyard and the lions were watching the action very intently. #5463602
