Lion Tries to Eat Baby at the Cheyenne Mountian Zoo [VIDEO]
Children always hope for a close-up animal experience when they visit a zoo, but it always seems like the animals are in the middle of a mid-day nap. However that wasn't the case with Angie, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo's 400-pound lioness, who found toddler Trent very...interesting.

The funniest (and maybe most disturbing) part of this video is the parents' reaction. Here is a lion, trying to fit the entirety of their child's head in her mouth, and they're overcome with a case of the giggles. Honestly though, if it were my child, I'd probably giggle too. Angie isn't even really aggressively attacking the glass; she seems to be just lazily curious. Plus, the glass serves as enough of a barrier that little Trent really isn't in any immediate danger...right?
Speculation aside, this video is adorable. It definitely stirs up some childhood memories, and makes me wish Lubbock had a zoo. Baby Trent has "survived" a pretty memorable experience, and will probably remember it the rest of his life. Anyway, isn't that what the zoo is all about?
