One-year-old Trent was visiting the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, Colo., with his parents when he caught the attention of a very curious — and hungry – lioness named Angie. The resulting video, which you can enjoy above, has gone viral, with almost 2 million views on YouTube.When I saw this, my first thought was, "Lions behind glass? What a bunch of wusses they are in Colorado."
Cute little Trent, with his sweet hooded sweater, was simply gleeful over the lioness's failed attempts at an attack. The 400-pound feline jumps at the baby as it sits and claps its tiny hands in happiness. At one point, the lioness opens up her ginormous mouth, exposing those deadly chompers, and you can't help but be thankful for the thick glass — Trent's head could literally fit in Angie's mouth.
