Are you afraid to let your children play with snakes?  BancroftTV reports that a father in Michigan is on a mission “to change opinions on what he sees is an irrational fear of snakes.”

The YouTube video shows his 14-month-old daughter playing with the family pet snake, a 10-year-old, 13-foot Python.

Snake Handler, Jamie Guarino wanted to prove that all snakes aren’t evil creatures. He believes they can be loving pets despite their reputation.

The video, posted on January 2nd has more than 800,000 views.

According to Guarino, his daughter was NOT in ANY danger.

He believes there are benefits to raising children around exotic animals. In addition to wanting his two daughters to open their minds to something different, he would also like for them to join the family business.
