Sofia Walker
Three-year-old girl, identified in some reports as Sofia Walker, faces down a lion at Wellington Zoo in New Zealand.

At the Wellington Zoo in New Zealand, a 3-year-old girl identified in some reports as Sofia Walker came face-to-face with a lion last week -- and she didn't even blink -- even when the king of beasts got a little feisty and tried to attack her through a pane of safety glass.

Though the video looks scary, zoo officials say the girl was never in danger.
