CHIBA, Japan — This zoo in Japan obviously keeps its windows very clean. So much so that a 400-lb. lion forgot it was there when it went to pounce on a toddler on the other side of the glass.
Whoops, there’s glass there. Poor big cat got made quite a thud when it face-planted into the dividing window.
The glass wall is only about a month old, allowing lions to see their human visitors more closely than ever before.
Zookeepers say the lion acts similarly each time he sees a small child, and simply wants to play with them.
Do you think the lion was just playing?
Either way, it’s a good thing that glass wall is thick!
