    A 7-year-old boy had a roaring time at Zoo Miami on Wednesday.

    Alex Hawker of Fort Myers backed up against the glass of the lion enclosure so his father could get a photo of the lioness laying down. She lunged at the glass and he froze!

    His father Sean Hawker called it a "wonderful adventure."
