F1 driver Lewis Hamilton came thiiiiis close to being A TIGER'S LUNCH -- when he sneaked up on the animal from behind ... and it was all caught on video.
Hamilton was south of the border at the Black Jaguar White Tiger Foundation when he decided to roll the dice and creep up on a big cat named Nicole ... just for laughs.
Fortunately for Lewis, Nicole didn't exactly react like the apex predator she is ... but as Siegfried and Roy learned the hard way DON'T MESS WITH TIGERS!!!
