When I was a young child, my parents taught me the following lesson: never, ever dress like a zebra and hang around a lion. Actually, that never happened, but judging by this video maybe it should have, as a family from Oregon recently found out when they dressed up their son Jack in an extremely zebra-esque ensemble and brought him to the zoo.

Little Jack took a break by the lion enclosure, where a lioness named Kya apparently thought she'd stumbled upon the easiest meal of all time. The lion tried everything to get at Jack, frantically pawing, scratching, and lunging at the child (who was ridiculously unfazed the entire time):

In case you're wondering  Jack is perfectly fine, but Kya was left frustrated and hungry.
