A lion got extra friendly with tourists at Taigan Safari Park in Crimea when it decided to jump into the car with them. 

The lion was laying down when the car full of tourists drove up. The curious lion walked up to the car and immediately jumped into it, seemingly seeking attention from the owner of the park and lion tamer, Oleg Zubkov, who was sitting in the driver's seat.

The lion then moved on to other uneasy tourists, rubbing his face all over a few of the passengers. 

This latest encounter comes just weeks after a woman was mauled by a different lion at the same park, according to local reports. 

In that case, the lion bit a tourist's arm and dragged her, but she survived.
