Infants' perception of risk and safety has always been an interesting area of research, and various studies have been conducted so far to observe and understand their willingness to cross a visual cliff, a large drop-off covered with a solid glass surface. After gaining crawling for sometimes, infants tend to start avoiding cliffs and apparent drop offs, which has always made researchers believe that they do so due to the fear of heights.
