Dad lets 14-month old toddler play with 13ft-Python
The dad said he thinks people are brainwashed to fear snakes
Mr Guarino said that he released the video to challenge people's perceptions around snakes and to prove that human fears of them are often irrational.
"I was showing the simple fact that snakes are not evil creatures," he said in the video.
"They can be a loving pet despite their bad reputation. My daughter was absolutely in no danger."
"There are 95% more dog attacks then snake attacks," he says in the video.
"When people see this clip they mostly react with fear or negativity and I don't understand why because as you can see the snake is just roaming around and has no interest in biting her, choking her or swallowing her," he continued.
"This is an embedded fear and I think people are brainwashed."
Mr Guarino and another daughter of his called Krista run SnakeHunters TV, a YouTube Channel dedicated to changing perceptions about snakes.
