camel eats girlA trip to the zoo recently took a crazy twist for a Kansas family when they got an up-and-personal meeting with a camel. In the following adorable-yet-slightly-terrifying video, you see a small girl sitting on her dad's lap at a drive-thru zoo. 

She's feeding a camel from the driver's side window, getting a big kick out of the animal eating from her hand and nuzzling her. It's all sorts of sweet ... until the hungry camel gets greedy, and decides he might like a taste of the girl. Her whole head is in the animal's mouth at one point. Check it out after the jump.

I can't get over how unfazed the dad appears. The girl seems to be giggling the whole time too. Even as her dad finally drives away and the camel follows, she is laughing. So at least it doesn't seem like she was too traumatized by the incident.

But sheesh! I would be freaking out if that was my kid. Camels are mean, and this wasn't some pet -- it's a wild animal. Who knows what that thing could have done?

I've never been to a drive-thru zoo before, and I'm not sure I'll be visiting one with my kids anytime soon. I prefer bars between them and wild animals.

What do you think of this video? Would you be freaking out if that was your kid?
