The children as young as THREE who are allowed to play with dad's 19ft pet python (but they know not to ask for a hug!)
This is one family who likes to walk on the wild side.
Father Eric LeBlanc is a reptile enthusiast who owns hundreds of lizards and snakes – and allows his three young children to play with them, including a 19ft reticulated python.
'The worst bite my daughter got was from a bearded dragon,' said LeBlanc.
'My son got bit in the forehead one time by a ball python when he was around two-years-old.
But there are some snakes LeBlanc won't allow near his children.
He said: 'Every animal has a different temperament just like people - but these guys are giants who can do a lot of damage.
'My children have been taught how to approach them and can definitely tell if one of the animals is agitated."
