The mother said that she has “no regrets” after she let the snake intentionally bite the child several times.
"It had bitten me and my son and didn't leave a mark, several times," she said to WFTS. "So, I thought it was a good opportunity to introduce her without actually getting hurt."
In the video the mother holds up a container with a rat snake inside and lets her daughter reach toward the snake. You can hear the daughter flinch and cry each time the snake strikes her.
This mom see it not as an "opportunity" but as a "mean" thing to do.
