Brave girl

By leons29
Had some fun taking this one. My two boys aged 6 and 12 was not going to go near this guy while my sister girl just loved him. We had to ask her to put him down and next she was busy handling the Pythons and American Corn snakes. Not a squeamish child this one. Good to have around because you never know what you will taking a photo of next.

Good girl! Reminds me of me when I was younger. Always finding some little critter to cuddle or rescue. Maybe a future vet in the making.
Excellent capture and love her proud little expression!

Great shot. She did well handling all the reptiles. I had a Bearded Dragon years ago that no-on in my family would touch. He was about 1.5 feet long called Fitz.

She looks very cool with the situation, an excellent wildlife model I would say. Bet she thought your two were wimps and was happy to show off. Great capture, definitely one for the family album.
