It may look like this jaguar is about to attack a man, but what it does instead is super cute

Much to the jaguar’s surprise, the man spins around and scares the living daylights out of the animal. The jaguar then jumps onto a ledge, sticks his face out toward the man with its jaw open and surprisingly kisses the man over and over again.

The viral video has been viewed more than 79,000 times.
