A little boy got the surprise of his life when he visited a zoo and a tiger began to wildly paw the exhibit's glass wall in an attempt to get to him.
The moment was captured on video when a family visited a pool where the tiger was swimming.
The video posted Monday sees the creature rise onto its hind legs and ferociously splash water on the glass in front of him by raising his front two paws.

The toddler boy sitting in a walker on the opposite side of the glass then shrieks with delight as the water cascades on the window in front of him.
The tiger rests for a moment to peer at the boy, before starting the splashing antics again, desperately trying to reach the child.
The laughing toddler then tries to place his hand on the glass to touch the tiger.
Nearby zoo guests too place their hands on the glass to amuse the animal.
The tiger tries one last time to reach the baby by raising up its two front paws on the glass before giving up and walking away, unable to touch his playmate.
'He’s trying to wash us! Right? He's trying to wash us?' a nearby girl says.
It is not clear where the video was filmed.
