A new exhibit where only a single sheet of reinforced glass separates visitors from the lions they watch was unveiled at the Asa Zoological Park in Hiroshima City, Japan this month. The exhibit is called “Leo Glass,” and it is the only one of its kind in Japan. Before the new exhibit, lions were separated from visitors by enclosures and ditches, with nine meters being the closest possible distance between visitors and lions.
