There’s nothing as scary as seeing a live snake close to you, but what’s more scary and shocking is seeing a two-old child so comfortable and happy playing with a snake.
This is the case of a 2-year old Australian boy, Charlie Parker whose
family owns a wildlife park in the country.
He is one of Australia’s youngest wildlife rangers. Although his
family said they have never exposed him to the animals, he however got
along with them naturally.
“We’re still shocked by his natural ability with the animals. It’s
quite remarkable to watch – he has absolutely no fear of them and he
doesn’t just handle them, he also has the knowledge. ‘We’ve never
purposely exposed him to the animals – he’s just got this obsession
with snakes and lizards. It must be genetic’, his father said.
Apparently it runs in the family: Charlie’s dad, Greg owns Ballarat
Wildlife Park in Victoria.
