This girl has nerves of steel.

According to reports, the hikers were out and were walking through the Chipinque Ecological Park in San Pedro Garza Garcia, Mexico, when the incident happened.
The bear wandered up to the hikers and got on its hind legs.
One of the woman that was with the hikers was sniffed properly by the black bear.
The 3 women managed to keep themselves calm in the entire incident, which is a hard thing to do considering the fact that a large black bear is standing right next to you.
Luckily, one of the women managed to grab her phone and took a snap with the black bear.
The video of the incident went viral on social media where a lot of people were praising the woman who managed to keep herself calm throughout the incident.
Experts advise people to stay calm if they come into close proximity with a black bear and to never stand between a cub and its mother.
It is a bad idea to approach a bear and take a selfie.
