Many have snakes as pets, but there's definitely a line that needs to be drawn. 

A video showing a boy riding a large python has shocked the Internet. 

The snake is a family pet, kept in their home in Thanh Hoa province in northern Vietnam.

In the video below, you can see the three-year-old toddler hopping onto the large serpent and starting to ride it as if it were a horse. 

"The python is 80kg...and very gentle. It was a rainy day and the water flooded to the edge of the yard. So they put the python in there to play and relax," the boy's aunt said. 

Whether it is gentle or not, there's no way that this behaviour is okay! That snake can strike and constrict the young boy at any time...

Would you allow your toddler to play with such a large snake?
