Parents: Don’t attempt this without thick, shatterproof glass between your child and fierce predators.
This video comes from one of the observation windows at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs. The glass is very thick, but it’s still a bit nerve-wracking being that close to such big cats. We were there last summer and watched a Bengal tiger stalk a zookeeper (who was protected in an empty pen nearby) as the guy traipsed through the jungly environment cleaning something. Yipes.
