Dog "Lion" at Chinese Zoo

Zoos are great for teaching kids about the different sounds that animals make.

Horses go neigh, pigs go oink oink, and lions go woof...

Wait! A lion is not roaring but barking...!?

Turns out it was no lion, but just a Tibetan mastiff, a large, hairy breed of dog, looking out from a cage labeled "African Lion" in Luohe Zoo in central China's Henan province.

It's a dog!! lol

Apparently, officials in the zoo hoped that no one would notice when they decided to make the switch and send the enclosure's regular resident, an African lion, away to a breeding center.

And, the dog-for-cat swap wasn't the only attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of zoo patrons: two coypu rodents in a snake's cage, a white fox in a leopard's den, and another domestic dog in a wolf pen. 

The regular residents in snake cage will be sorrow when they notice their dissimilar replacements. 

I'd like to visit such a ridiculous fake zoo if possible. 

There we'll see zookeepers in a cage with the sign "Gorilla" on its gate.
