With everyone talking about zoo animals and small children, I thought I would share my daughter's experience with a grown lion at a Colorado Zoo. The Cheyenne Mountian Zoo in Colorado Springs has a cool experience, where you can spend the night and enjoy private evening and morning tours of their exotic animals. The best part is this is when the animals are most active. When taking the morning tour, right before feeding time, one of the lions took a liking to my daughter, however, it may have just been her Hello Kitty hat.
