What type of glass to use with a lion?

I am putting a photo box together that will have a lion inside. The box will have one side of glass. So people can pose next to the glass part of the box and have a picture taken. So the picture will look like the people are right next to the lion when in fact they are protected by the glass partition.

My question to all experts is what type of glass should i use?

I don't want anything that can scratch but it needs to be strong enough to withstand the pressure of a 450 pound lion rubbing against it.

The box will be 6ft by 4 ft.

Please give me your suggestions on what type of glass to use

You should use 10mm glass laminated for security (safety of the lion?). Use 'Amiran' glass so that photogrhaphs don't show reflections:
Amiran glass*
Non-reflective clear glass used for shop windows, showcases and showrooms Available in thicknesses from 4mm to 10mm can be laminated and or toughened.

Could use the above mentioned glass,but be sure to use the thickest lamination available....10mm glass + lamination(more than 1mm) + 10mmglass.Also the installation should be at least 2cm into the frame.Hope this helps.Cheers.
