Babies and Snakes – Yes, Really

Babies and snakes, this mom thinks this is just CRAZY

When stumbling through the interwebs while freaking out over people posting photos of bad parenting, I came across something that baffled me. See, there were numerous photos of the thing I love most in the world, BABIES and the thing I despise most in the world SNAKES.

Yes, people, babies and snakes.

WHY combine the two? I have been asking myself that as I cringe and shake my head in disgust.

In all fairness, I asked my husband WHY for the love of GOD and all things cute and cuddly WHY?! He gave me a man answer. Something. Yadda yadda. Non-venemous. Yadda yadda. Yeah whatever.

I’m not buying any reason to put a baby near a snake. But to each their own.

Prepare yourself people. I present to you, a round up of babies and snakes.

    The way this snake is looking at the baby is scary. I don't think he wants to be friends. Venomous or not - no thanks.

    I read that the snake was defanged. I don't care if the snake was dead, not my baby.

*cringe* Obviously I have a fear of snakes. Can you tell? (I seriously had goose bumps looking at a few of these photos!)

Now puppy dogs? I love dogs! Just snakes, no thanks. Are you a pet lover? Well Babble has a new blog JUST FOR YOU! Introducing Babble Pets!
