GOT A CRUSH ON YOU: Fearless Boy Gets To Grip With Boa

This is the moment a giggling child carries a boa constrictor bigger than him as the snake wraps its coils around him.

The video was shot in a reptile room in North Carolina state, USA.

The video shows the lad as his dad hands him the snake and carries it to its enclosure.

He said he was going to be “the snake man now” as the snake wrapped itself around him.

But he needed a helping hand from dad to unravel the snake as it tightened its grip on the boy.

Boas are not venomous but kill their prey by slowly squeezing it until it can no longer breathe.

Newsflash spoke to Joe Devine, 41, who said he shares videos to help people overcome their fear of snakes.

He explained: “The fear of snakes starts at home and we fear what we don’t understand.”
