Lioness reacts to stuffed 'Simba' toy at Oklahoma City Zoo

- A lioness’ curiosity seemed to peak when she came face-to-face with a toy shaped like her.

Mila was turning five years old on Saturday and visited the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Gardens on Saturday with her family. But Mila didn’t come alone. She brought her stuffed animal, Simba, based off the cub character from the Disney film, The Lion King

Her great-aunt, Mary Jo Keltch Robertson, captured video showing a lioness eyeing Mila's stuffed toy before pawing at the glass. She even followed the little girl and Simba as she walks back and forth.
