And no one got eaten alive. Wonderful.

Cami Fanning's 11-month-old godson Aryeh loves lions so much that he likes to dress up as one, and when she brought him to the zoo, the most magical thing happened.

Describing the incident on YouTube, Fanning said: "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! Aryeh was completely unfazed and interacted with the lions for a few minutes."

They moved on before the lions got too agitated but this is a memory Aryeh, whose name means 'lion' in Hebrew, will have forever.
