A game of tag between a toddler and a tiger has everyone's attention on the Web.

KTVB.com reports two-year-old Marshall Shaffer dressed up as a tiger for Halloween and wore his costume to  the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Washington.

During his visit, he caught the eye of Kalia, a Sumatran tiger cub.

The toddler ran back and forth, and so did Kalia, following his every move.

Thankfully, the pair of playing pals were separated by thick safety glass.
