At some zoos, tamer animals are allowed to roam free. You just don’t expect them to roam on top of your sleeping baby’s head…
When Angie Widener took her nine-week-old baby to the zoo, she probably didn’t expect to leave with a photograph that would take the web by storm. But the US mum managed to snap a pic of a lemur on top of her baby’s head. Yep, literally sat on her sleeping daughter’s head.
The mum-of-three had taken her baby into the lemur exhibit at Tanganyika Wildlife Park in Goddard, Kansas, in her carseat – as you aren’t allowed to take a pram into the enclosure.
Angie told the Huffington Post that she watched her two older children feed the lemurs before being told by a stranger, ‘Um, ma’am, there is a lemur on your baby.’
‘I was shocked, but the zookeeper assured me she was safe, so my two older daughters and I got a few laughs and we snapped some pictures,’ said Angie.
