    Talk about people who should have their children taken away…

    Snakes cannot be domesticated, and they do not bond with humans (or anything for that matter). The best you can ever hope for with a snake is that you are not perceived as a threat, and not perceived as food. Children are NOT too small to be considered food for such a large snake. This will end in tragedy some day.

    I’ve seen cats that jump up and can open lever handles. A youtube vid show an octopus twisting and opening a jar to get at food inside. Animals have intelligence. They’re not really so different from us. It’s probably time we stopped eating them. We can easily live on soybean products and other forms of protein. How can we condemn the eating of dogs and dolphins and horses in some countries when we eat cows and pigs here? Horsemeat — factory farming and slaughterhouses — by the way, are coming to the United States. The USDA has approved horse slaughtering plants this year in the US.

    This is beyond creepy, however, it’s true, the kid is being supervised. Not so sure that reptiles can’t develop feelings for humans (apart from an appetite for), crocodiles have been proven to be able to.

    “But he never squushed the kid before….”

    Realistically, if the python, which is a constrictor, decides it wants a snack, regardless of “supervision” I doubt there is any way that the kid could be retrieved before it’s too late.
