Peoria Zoo Africa Exhibit

Talk about up close and personal!! We took our family to the Peoria Zoo on Tuesday to experience the new Africa Exhibit, and we were not let down. Shortly after coming upon the lion area, the female locked in on what she hoped would be her prey.....my 2 year old son! She was perched upon a rock and when she was ready, she charged the glass, and started pawing at him. He was startled at first, but then gave a sheepish grin!
