A giant snake wraps around a child, but the father does nothing and keeps filming
While most parents are very careful when it comes to their children's safety, some of them are willing to risk it in order to educate people.
This is what professional snake handler Jamie Guarino tried to do recently when he posted a video of her little daughter playing with a snake.
According to Daily Star, the little stunt won't win him the Father of the Year award, but he is determined to show that the massive snake is actually harmless.
Guarino posted footage of his daughter Alyssa, who's now 3 years old, while she was playing with his adored pet python.
This 13-feet pet Burmese python is capable of killing a fully-grown adult, but he lets her 14-month-old daughter play with it, as he thinks it's safe.
The clip shows the then-toddler while interacting, cuddling, and rolling next to the deadly snake, named Nay Nay, not knowing what this reptile is capable of.
According to this professional snake handler, pythons simply have a bad reputation as people were brainwashed into having fear towards them.
"Snakes are not evil creatures, they can be a loving pet despite their bad reputation.My daughter was absolutely in no danger," he explained.
He also explained the animal's behavior, claiming that it never had the intention to bite her, choking her, or swallowing her.
"To those of you who might see this as irresponsible or dangerous, please don't judge me based on fear or something you don't understand. Snakes can be and are loving animals."
Nay Nay is not the only pet in the Guarino's house in Michigan, USA. He owns another 29 reptiles, including anacondas and alligators.
This kind of Burmese python is usually found in Southern and Southeast Asia. It is one of the five largest snakes in the world and is considered a popular pet.
