It's a mystery that has a Southern California neighborhood talking: surveillance video captured a large animal prowling near homes.
According to California Department of Fish and Wildlife officials, it's NOT a mountain lion. They say it actually looks like like a lion out of the zoo...but the local zoo says it's not missing any animals.
