Personally, I don't blame you. There are some really bright 5-year-olds out there. But, either way shouldn't YOU, as the zoo employ know more?

My 5-year-old sister outsmarts me all the time. Its usually with the way i say things, she twists it all around; it's probably bc she's got 3 older sisters and has to stay ahead of the game.. Still, she's very clever for a 5-year-old. This FML doesn't surprise me.

52, in my head OP read what was on the sign then BOOM, out comes this give year old from left field with some national geo channel speech.

I hate when you go to zoos or museums and the guide feels s/he has to be the world foremost expert on everything. Just relax, encourage smart kids & try to learn something from everyone you meet. No one likes a know-it-all too stuck up to praise a smart kid.

I don't blame them at all . When I was 5 I was obsessed with dinosaurs and I knew the most obscure facts about them . On every other subject I was just a normal kid but If someone brought up dinosaurs... Well they were going to get lectured. OP probably just came across a lion kid

So was I, then I discovered dragons. Dinosaurs seemed pretty lame after finding out their flying, fire-breathing cousins were easily accessible.

Well he had to have done SOME kind of research, right? I mean, you don't just say "these are the lions... They have stripes.." Little kid- "well some lio-" "ns will eat children who harass minimum wage employees." *deathstare

Maybe he did do research but forgot or got nervous, it was his first day on the job. If he didn't know what he was talking about they probably wouldn't have hired him.

Nat geo FTW. People especially children tend to learn a lot about fascinating animals on tv. Still you got owned by a 5 year old :)

Hmmm, I don't know about that... I am an intern at the Houston zoo and while holding a model ostrich egg in front of the shared giraffe/ostrich exhibit I got like 6 people ask me if it was a giraffe egg... it makes me scared for the future generation

Give them a break -- most people walking around the Houston Zoo have some form of heat exhaustion or heat stroke. They are probably delirious.
