>>> talk about cool under fire. this was a hugely popular video on the web last 24 hours . check out the unflinching cool of the 3-year-old at the wellington zoo in new zealand, versus a full-grown male lion with steamy breath who was thinking perhaps lunch. 3-year-old sophia walker was having a staring contest and just hung in there. when it was all over, she turned to ask her mom what's he telling me? we have some idea.
