TODDLER KISSES 15-FOOT PYTHON GOODNIGHT
A man known as ‘Rattlesnake Rob’ claims his 15-foot python is one of the family – and his two-year-old daughter even kisses the 13-stone monster goodnight.
‘Rattlesnake’ Rob Cowan says his 19 snakes are so much part of his family that his daughter Alisha-Mae and ten-month-old tot Cameron love them like brothers and sisters.
The 35-year-old has collected snakes since his teens and his ‘family’ include nine reticulated pythons, three Burmese pythons, five royal pythons and even two anacondas.
‘Gentle giant’ Austin – a 15-foot Burmese python – enjoys nothing more than relaxing in the garden with Rob, his fiancé Stacey and Alisha-Mae.
The dad-of-two believes reptiles get a bad rap and says that people’s lack of knowledge causes them to fear and even hurt snakes.
Rob hopes these incredible photos of him and his extended family relaxing with his reptiles will allay people’s fears.
