This Baby Got Some Very Special Attention On Her First Trip To The Zoo… 


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.

What’s your baby’s funniest animal encounter? Let us know in the comments box below.
