A little girl and her pet snake were recently recorded hanging out on their couch and it is one of the cutest things you’ll ever see.
The video, which has gone viral, features a cute little girl hanging out with her pet snake as they watch television.
Critics immediately attacked the parents, saying that they were putting their daughter at risk.
“I don’t feel this is safe this is a snake at the end of the day the mother needs to be investigated,” reads one of the comments under the video that was posted on LADBible’s Facebook page.
“Them parents (sic) are stupid. No matter how friendly you think your snake is, it’s still a snake. You can’t change its natural behaviours. All it would take is one sudden wrap around the kid and the girls (sic) dead,” read another comment.
The parents responded, saying that their daughter was safe and that the snake is completely harmless.
“My daughter is perfectly safe. Interaction with any animal and child must always be supervised. No, it is not sizing her up. That is a stupid myth. So is the yawning before they eat. Absolute rubbish,” he stated.
“Do you know what this snake loves to eat? Rats. She loves rats. Won’t eat anything else. For the love of God I have tried rabbit but she is a really fussy madam. She just eats defrosted rats,” he wrote, adding that this snake was raised in captivity. “No we have never been bitten.”
