We’re all aware of how well-liked children and pets are. I never imagined a kid would make a large wild cat so happy, though. But when this adorable young child encounters a lion in the Atlanta Zoo, the results are nothing short of heartwarming.
An 11-month-old toddler dressed up like a lion cub pays a visit to the Atalanta zoo with his parents and godfather Cami Fanning. While for most of the visitors just seeing the cute little kid was already adorable enough, little did they know the toddler’s visit would turn into such a lovely scene.
“My close friend and I took our 11 month old godson to Zoo Atlanta for a little god family outing,” Cami wrote in the video’s caption. “Our godson’s name is Aryeh, which means lion in Hebrew, so his mom packed his lion costume.”
As they approached the lions’ enclosure, the little boy, Aryeh, came to a stand in front of the glass and peered at the enormous wild cat from the other side. However, it appears that the large lion was much more entranced by the guest than usual.
The godfather wrote, “The lions were instantly fascinated in our tiny lion baby, and it wasn’t long before they could no longer contain their curiosity and came straight up to the glass.”
Shortly after Cami uploaded the adorable footage online, it went viral stealing hearts of millions. “Aryeh was completely unfazed and interacted with the lions for a few minutes,” the man wrote. “It was incredible! Definitely a great memory from our first little godfamily outing.”
