WATCH: Baby Plays With Giant Python In Scary Snake Video
Meet Alyssa. In this video, she’s 14 months old and playing with a 13-foot Burmese python. Alyssa’s father, Jamie Guarino, is a snake handler who filmed Alyssa’s adventures with the family’s terrifying pet Nay-Nay. Check out the clip below!
Alyssa is actually three years old now, meaning she survived. It’s all part of Guarino’s mission to show the world that snakes are not as dangerous as you may believe. “In this video, I was showing the simple fact that snakes are not evil creatures,” he says. “They can be a loving pet, despite their bad reputation. My daughter was absolutely in no danger.”
Guarino explains, “When people see this clip, they mostly react with fear or negativity, and I don’t understand why. Because as you can see, the snake is just roaming around. It has no interest in biting her or choking her or swallowing her. This is an embedded fear, and I think people are brainwashed.”
“To those of you who might see this video as irresponsible or dangerous, please take a minute. Don’t judge based on fear or something you don’t understand. Snakes can be and are loving animals,” says the doting dad, pointing out that there are way more dog attacks than snake attacks, although we’re not really sure the comparison is fair. In any case… here’s a baby playing with a snake! Check out the video below!
