Harvey the Hound presents chill baby to Flames fans

Mascot recreates classic scene from 'The Lion King' @NHLdotcom

That's definitely not a lion. That's a human baby.

And that's not wise old mandrill Rafiki. It's Harvey the Hound, the Calgary Flames mascot, holding a young fan at a game against the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday.

Tweet from @NHLFlames: �� The circle of life ��

Harvey is playing the role of Rafiki, who presents Simba, the newborn lion, to the Pride Lands in the Disney classic "The Lion King."

While that kid may not be the next king of the jungle, we have to give out some major credit for the sweet pink toque and stylish-but-safe noise-cancelling headphones.

Also, major bonus points to the kid, not only for not crying, but for looking out on the crowd in super chill mode like getting held up by a giant hound mascot while the theme from "The Lion King" blares is an everyday occurrence.

Nice job all around here.
