You Have to See It to Believe It — Lion Shocks Tourists by Opening Car Door on Safari

Tourists go on safari to get up close and personal with wild animals. But for one family on vacation at a safari park in South Africa, a curious lion got a little too close for comfort.

In a video sure to leave your jaw on the floor, a female lion casually strolls up to a car and sniffs around, before opening the door with her mouth!

A woman inside the car was recording the close encounter, and screamed loudly before dropping the camera and closing the door.

“Oh my gosh, I didn’t know they could do that,” she screamed.

We’ve learned two things from this video. One, always lock your door on safari. And two, it’s never too late to teach an old lion new tricks.
