    Check out this Lion at this Japanese Zoo. I am sure he was just wanting to "play" with this little boy.

    This shows why you should never turn your back on a cat. He was just waiting for that and then boom!

    Also, I like the glass wall. That's way better than a fence- and it probably does a better job of keeping kids from falling in like with that gorilla recently.

    Omg as soon as I saw the lion get down like that. As soon as the kid turned his back, here he came. Wow!

    I showed that video to my wife and told her "See, that's why I need a .416." Thanks for the help!

    We had a big male gorilla do the same thing at the Denver zoo, only it was out of anger from a dozen little kids banging on the glass despite there being signs to not allow your children to do it. When he hit the glass it sounded like thunder and actually bowed it out far enough to knock the kids over. They all started crying , the mothers were screaming- hopefully more than one lesson was learned

    I would venture a guess that it may not be Glass but some form of Plexiglass that would flex and not shatter

    Based on how far the glass bowed from the Gorilla I would have to agree with the plexiglass or some kind of acrylic deal. It appeared to be 1.5-2in thick at the gorilla enclosure, which gives an idea of the power of some of these animals
