How are you, Mr Lion?

In this interesting picture taken in a zoo, it almost looks like the lion and the tiny owl are friends, but in actual fact the situation was quite dangerous.

The baby owl, which lived in a lime tree in the lion enclosure, fell from the nest and hopped up to the lion. Zoo visitors were alarmed but helpless, as it was too dangerous to do anything to save the owl. Fortunately, after peering at the cute owl for a while, the lion was not interested. After several clumsy efforts, the owl later flew to safety.

It was quite funny how the cute little owl looked at the lion innocently and fearlessly, totally unaware of the impending danger.
