A lioness gave a family quite a scare when she opened their car door during a recent safari trip.

Joshua Sutherland said his family was visiting South Africa when the big cat decided she wanted to get inside the vehicle.

Sutherland said his family was a little rattled at first, but they later laughed it off.
