This Father Let His 14-Month-Old Daughter Play With His Giant, Deadly Burmese Python

Posted on Other Stuff 21

Typically, small children and deadly snakes don’t go together, especially giant pythons. However, the Guarinos aren’t your typical family. Jamie Guarino has worked as a snake handler his entire life. As such, he prefers the company of snakes to dogs or cats.

That being said, it’s still pretty shocking to see his 14-month-old daughter, Alyssa, rolling on the floor, playing with a very large Burmese python named Nay-Nay.

This is Jamie Guarino, and he has been working with snakes since he was 16-years-old.
