Watch a Toddler’s Brave Reaction to an Angry Lion [VIDEO]

Sofia lion

There isn’t safety glass thick enough for most people to look right into the eyes of an increasingly angry lion, but 3-year old Sofia Walker of Wellington, New Zealand isn’t most people.

When the little girl began staring at Malik the lion, who was behind glass at the local zoo, the jungle king let out an intimidating growl. When that didn’t move the toddler away, Malik began rapidly thrusting his paws — which are about as big as Sofia’s head — against the glass in an attempt to break free from his cage. Yikes!

This startled Sofia enough to flinch, but she almost immediately put her hands back on the glass, and reacted to Malik’s displeasure by adding giggling to her staring. Would you be as brave as this girl in the face of a lion?
