When Cami Fanning took her 11-month-old godson to the zoo dressed as a lion, she never expected the moment the baby shared with an actual lion to go viral, but it has.

The little guy's name is Aryeh, which means "lion" in Hebrew and knowing there were lions at the zoo, his mom packed the baby's lion costume for his day out.

Through her YouTube channel, Fanning explained what happened next, "It was a pretty cold day so when we first arrived, the lions weren't out yet. We saw the rest of the animals and stopped by the lion exhibit on our way out, saw that the lions were out and put Aryeh in his costume, thinking we'd snap a picture of him with the lions in the background."

She went on, "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! We took some pictures and videos before moving along as the lions started getting a little worked up and we didn't want to make them too anxious."
