What does the jag say? Gimmie five!

HATTIESBURG, MS (WLOX) -

We've all seen the pictures of animals at the zoo trying to play or reach children on the other side of the protective glass. But two South Mississippi kids got a rare treat this week at the Hattiesburg zoo.

Gulfport mother Kristal Beachy caught on camera a jaguar playing with her son, Brenham, and family friend, Kennedy. Kristal told us the jaguar was pacing back and forth by the glass, so she put her hand on the glass and the animal mimicked her. Her kids then did the same thing, as you can see in these pictures. Then the jaguar started licking the glass. 

Beachy said this wonderful show went on for at least five minutes.

If you ever have a fun picture you want to share with the rest of South Mississippi, email it to pics@wlox.com and we'll show it off on WLOX.com.
