Little girl picks up a big snake like it’s nothing!
Many adults have a great fear of snakes, but little Adriana is not. You just have to watch what she does while exploring this small island with her uncle. Her nonchalant attitude combined with her uncle’s reaction is nothing short of hilarious!
This little girl has a future as a snake handler! So often snakes are so fearful of people, I’m amazed at how easily she was able to grab this snake without it slithering away.
For those worrying about the girl’s safety, the video’s description says this was shot here in my home state of Michigan. There is only one species of venomous snake here and that’s the eastern massasauga rattlesnake, an endangered species, and very rare sight. I’ve lived here my whole life without seeing one. I know only a few people who have.
It’s hard to tell from the video, but it appears this may have been a northern water snake, a pretty common non-venomous species I’ve encountered many times kayaking myself.
I’ve always found it amusing when people are afraid of snakes. As little Adriana shows, unless it’s venomous, there’s really nothing to be frightened of!
