VIDEO: 3-year-old girl not scared of lion

You could call this three year old girl a lion tamer.

Sofia Walker was caught on camera last week by her parents, face-to-face with a lion at a New Zealand zoo.

You can see the little girl has her hand on the glass as the 8 year old lion stares at her and then paws at the glass.

Despite, the glass being very strong, Sofia's mother was still nervous the lion would break through.

But not Sofia. She said "I was brave". She turns four next month and wants to return to the zoo.
