Many of us had pets in childhood: dogs, cats, birds, fish and others. But a British girl named Amy Taoka probably has the most unusual friend. Such a pet will definitely seem to many, to put it mildly, unsuitable. After all, the girl grows up with a five-meter python.
When Amy was a year old, her father decided to buy a home snake. He read somewhere that these reptiles help to get rid of stress and anxiety. So a yellow python named Cher appeared in their house. The girl literally played with a snake from the cradle. Therefore, he is not afraid of her. On the contrary, Cher became her best friend.
Now the girl is already seven years old. Ed, Amy’s father says that there are strict rules in their house. So, the girl and the python never stay in the room together. Amy has never dragged a snake by the tail and never puts it on her head. The girl is forbidden to feed and bathe reptiles.
Adhering to such rules, the child and the snake can interact. According to Ed, Cher never bit anyone. She is very friendly to her daughter. The man is not afraid because the python can harm Amy.
Many friends call Ed an irresponsible father. He also believes that the girl has more options to suffer on a trampoline or an inflatable castle than from a snake.
According to him, Cher’s child is not associated with the victim. Feed the snake twice a week. In order not to injure Amy, she is forbidden to be present at this. Because at this time the python becomes a predator. Although, when the girl becomes an adult, she will be able to feed her pet herself.
