Then when the snake wraps it’s body around the baby suffocating it, and trying to swallow it. The parents will then tell the authorities, “i don’t know what happened? we made sure to expose our snake to the baby as soon as possible.”
Whoa, this is bad on two levels. I’ve owned large pythons, and first, they WILL constrict something as small as a baby in a heartbeat. Second, as many here have pointed out, they are covered in salmonella (I got it once from handling one of my snakes, I really thought I was going to die, had to go to hospital). This is absurdly dangerous, and those people should be reported.
I’ve been keeping snakes for 18 years and they’re actually really clean animals, completely void of salmonella, if the owners practice proper husbandry. I have 22 pet snakes right now and I’m due to have my first baby in January, and I will absolutely let him interact with the snakes – because I take care of my snakes (they even get baths!), and am a very hygienic person.
