In the film, the character wears a yellow gown in a famous dance scene that resembles the colour of the snake.

According to Reuters, the eight-year-old has always had animals around since she lives with her parents in an animal sanctuary in southern Israel.

The duo has been spending a lot of time with each other as schools are currently shut due to the pandemic.

“It helps me pass the time because I really like to hang out with snakes and sometimes I help snakes shed (their skin) and I help them to be happy during coronavirus,” Inbar told Reuters.
