Watch Jack play it cool with the hungry lioness

Check out this fearless kid from America who has been caught on camera at a zoo meeting a lioness.

Jack was playing it cool when the hungry beast approached him and seems unfazed as she goes for a bite.

Luckily for Jack, he was separated from the lioness by a thick pane of glass.

We think his zebra-style jumper may have had something to do with the lioness' excitement.
