 ? about snakes around kids

I am having a problem with my ex claiming that I canít see my daughter(2yr) becuase it is unhealthy to have her at my place around my Burmese python and red tail boa(they stay in there tanks when she is around). So she doesnít even come into contact with them. She also says the same about my pet rat. I donít see any harm with a rat is it no different then a cat dog or hamster. (the ex doesnít like snakes or rats) what is your opinion?

i personaly think its good for kids to be in contact with animals like this
that way they are less likely to be scared of them

this is my boy with a corn snake

WOW... thats all I can say... well your ex has absolutly no clue about what she is talking about!!! As long as your kids wash their hands after coming in contact with your pets their is no problem. I agree with the post above its great to have kids come in contact with snakes
