It appears that Zhang Ziyi’s five-year-old daughter Xingxing is fearless when it comes to reptiles. The 42-year-old Chinese actress recently posted a cute video of Xingxing in a pet shop, getting up close and personal with the reptiles on display.

“Did you think that five-year-old girls only like to play with dolls?” the actress asked in her video, before going on to show a very cool and very collected Xingxing with a corn snake curled around her tiny little hands.

Besides the corn snake, the five-year-old goes on to handle a number of cold-blooded creatures such as a bearded dragon, gecko and even a tree frog. Xingxing appeared to be super calm throughout the video, carefully handling the reptiles with two hands while being assisted by the shop staff, as reported by 8days.sg.

“[The snake feels] very cold, there’s nothing [scary] about it,” Xingxing said, when asked about her snake-handling experience.

Netizens could not help but shower praise on Xingxing, with many commenting that she’s “very brave”.

“She’s too awesome, if it were me, I’d be so frightened,” one netizen wrote, while another commented that they “had goosebumps just from watching the video”.
