You know how it is; you're driving along, enjoying the scenery, and, all of a sudden, a LION opens your car door.

No? Well, maybe it's a little more niche an experience than we imagined…

This family, however, experienced just that while they were on safari in South Africa.

Their camera was happily focused on a pack of lounging lions, all of whom looked docile and unaware of their presence - but they hadn't realised that one less chilled out feline had crept up to their car door.

Cue the majestic beast staring in at them all through the window at them, before casually whipping open the door - using her teeth.

Check. It. Out.

It's just like the velociraptors in Jurassic Park, isn't it?

Thankfully, one quick-thinking person (who presumably will be played by Sam Neill in the movie) grabbed hold of the door and slammed it shut, before locking it from the inside.

A female voice can then be heard saying: "Oh my gosh, I didn't know they could do that."

We guess maybe they've evolved, eh?
