A 3-year-old girl at a New Zealand zoo recently displayed the type of calmness some adults could only dream of having.

In a video published online, Sofia Walker seemed unaffected when a lion tried to attack her through its safety glass, producing stunning footage.

Zoo officials say that despite the lion’s aggression, size and strength, Walker was never in any real danger.

WATCH: Video from CBS, which was broadcast on January 10, 2012.
