An Enormous lion sprints towards an unsuspecting toddler and pounces - only to smash face first into the glass screen of his zoo enclosure.

Video footage shows the little boy staring into the big cat's habitat wearing a yellow rain coat - with the lion starting menacingly back.

The king of the jungle lies prostrate at the back of its den, before the boy momentarily looks back towards the camera.

Suddenly, the fearsome animal leaps forward, sprinting towards the child at terrifying speed.

As it gets closer, the lion raises its claws, apparently about to strike.

But luckily for the young lad he is saved by the reinforced glass screen, the lion crashing head first into the see through barrier with a loud thump.

The toddler turns round at the noise, to see a huge wild animal just inches away from him clawing frantically at the glass.
