    SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft Animals:
    A YOUNG woman is preparing to make the move to live with her long-distance boyfriend in Thailand and care for the world’s deadliest snakes. 18-year-old Lara Mlinaric from Croatia, met 22-year-old reptile-enthusiast Christopher Shannon, aged 22, on the internet when she asked him a question about one of her animals. The pair hit it off and Lara is now preparing to move to Bangkok to be with Chris and start their own centre dealing with the rehabilitation of venomous snakes. Chris owns over 60 snakes including a King Cobra which has a bite capable of injecting enough neurotoxic venom to kill 20 people.

      Love his ig

    2. Austin Thompson

      HIS INSTAGRAM IS chrisweet and hers is viperfangs. They are absolute goals and they post all sorts of cool interesting stuff

    3. Red Pill Veteran

      What I was told in the army. You see a snake, leave it alone and go the other way.

    4. Royce Lane

      Okay for the young gentleman that got bit on the finger I think that's all it would take for me to not like snakes however this video was very educating and you seem to be well knowledged in this field so kudos to you, but I'd rather watch you on video then standing next to you when you have one of those things in your hand..😵

    5. Jose Kamara

      You live by the snakes you will die by the snakes and you will be burn in Hell mark my words.

    6. Mátyás Kassay

      Wow, I've never seen Chris on a video before!

    7. Thunder Ghost

    8. Daniel Doss

    10. CRO Pirotehnika i ostalo

      Im from croatia too

    11. Python Reticulatus

      I hate breeders and there “tubs”

    12. Boora

      That's so dumb, like legit do you not value your life... Not saying he should do what he does, but free handling is just dumb, i don't care what anyone says, a snake could be in a bad mood, could get scared, or any other reason and you're dead., use a feeding instrument and gloves, get a phyton to play around with if you want to free handle, honestly nothing against snakes or him but your life is valuable dude.

      1. MrGlenspace

        Matyas, I would never rely on predictability because all wild animals are unpredictable.

      2. Mátyás Kassay

        Well, it still depends on the handler. A real professionist like him can read the snake's body language and can tell if it's safe to handle it or not. Snakes are really simple animals compared to us, they are pretty predictable if you know some things about them.

      3. MrGlenspace

        I do nit know about Thailand, but in US you need permits for venomous snakes and many hours if training to keep legally.

    17. CommanderCaleb

      Are you killing innocent little rats that never even had a chance at living, the snakes are stupid and they don’t need to be cared for. Put them in the wild. You need to be caring for those little baby mice how about that not Those stupid snakes

    24. Ben Finnell

      Oh my god... I know that king cobras do eat other snakes... but to feed a live snake with feelings to another snake and just film it... that’s not right.

    30. Jimbo Jones

      let the stupid people handle venomous snakes like that and get whats coming there will be less stupid people on the planet. your not teaching anything by this video one slip thats it and there are people out there that will try and do the same thing. your not a smart person for even showing anyone this cause there are always people that will try because of it. cant fix stupid.

    31. DearStephh

      been following him in insta for 2 years now, i was expecting to see Omen or Oracle

    32. Technoraptor 777

      He seems a bit autistic and a virgin....but besides that...the relationship won't last and yes he does take very good care of his animals.


      Feel home 1 bite and your dead you do realise that don't you

    34. Waterboi Fendi

      It’s easy to say that keeping a ball python in the rack system is bad but when I was in South America boas stayed in the same spot right outside the village and she was there all week crammed between rocks, when we went to Africa same deal with the ball pythons for the 4 days I was there the same ball python was in the smallest spot and you can see their waste they poop and move 3 ft over and just stays there

    35. sky briggs

      ive been up to date with his herping adventures for like 2 years now!!! how have i not seen this yet!!

    36. slurwin119

      I hate to say it but you free hand venemous snakes long enough eventually you are going to get bitten, these snakes while not evil or anything are being kept in captivity and they probably do not like this. Thus one day one of these venemous snakes is gonna be annoyed and bite when being handled..... Wild animals are wild animals not pets, give their venom the respect it deserves.

    37. Bear Birch

      That guys girl friend is sooooooo faking

    38. bay castillo

      I follow him and his beautiful girlfriend on insta amazing people absolutely love these two!!! He also has this beautiful king cobra opral ( i dont think I spelt that right) but all his babys are absolutely amazing!!!!

    39. LoneRider27


    40. Bell Wolf

      Much respect for sharing facts and your opinions educating on reptiles and snakes! They are so misunderstood and looked over a lot, because of this they are getting hurt and not cared for and Noone seems to notice or not care. So thank you for sharing this and teaching people snakes are not bad. Nor any animal if there is a animal to be bad it's the human!

    41. Siyavuya Mgulwa

      Can he please educate my mom she is so scared of snakes. I am in love with royal or ball pythons and my mom is always like its going to eat u and I'm over here like they to small to eat u

    42. Taevian's World of Reptiles!

    43. Mya Hollandia

    44. zo p

      Weird couple!!!!! Spooky!!!!

    45. shelbey mercer

      Glass animalsssss

    46. Hotdog Cat

      They’re really prettyyyyy…

    47. Cujo TheRedNose

      Oooooh the idiot who owns venomoids and defangs his snakes!!! Now some idiot chose to highlight his stupidity!!! .... great!!!! 🤦🏻‍♂️

      1. Kastile Cuss-teal

        You must know nothing. None of his snakes are defanged. Not a single one of them.

    48. Jacob Roberts

      I cant believe he didnt show off Oracle and Omen!!!

      1. Alceste Camille

        He did

    49. Naheed Akhtar

      My friend Hannah and Brooke there twins have a king banana snake well that’s what I think the species name is and they have the snake as a pet in there home

    50. Super VJ Land

      that newly-acquired black snake looks like an INDORAPTOR haha

    51. Radioactive Eternity

      The glass animals shirts explains the aesthetic perfectly

    52. Tristen

      what snake is at 1:37?

      1. Tristen

        MangoCat i want one 😂

      2. CoffeePigeon

        It looks like a blue pit viper, but I might be wrong.

    53. Gen. G.

      He is actually giving really good advice and you can see the love he gives his animals

    54. FuzedPlayz

      So apparently it’s horrible for breeders to keep snakes in tubs and ball pythons are kept cramped in tubs, if the husbandry is right in the tub the snake will be comfortable and ball pythons enjoy tight small spots, that was a lot of misinformation other then that good video

    55. Chris Plati


    56. Not Rr

      Why is the thumbnail of one of the most harmless snakes

    57. Martha Garreau

      I know how you feel I can’t get a snake

    58. Skeet! da whaledog

      But... ball pythons don't like large enclosures.... it stresses them out...

      1. Skeet! da whaledog

        @CoffeePigeon it did lol I know I'm just saying if breeders kept each snake in a huge enclosure one it would be pricey and two it would stress the snake out. I know because I own and breed ball pythons. (Will breed my female is only 1 year old)

      2. CoffeePigeon

        Ball pythons can live in big enclosures if there is enough foliage and other things to help make them feel secure (like adding a lot of plants or fake plants and vines). If they have bigger enclosures, it’s also a good idea to add more hides as well so that the little ball python will not feel stressed when it’s out in the open. (I hope this reply made sense)

    59. Gata S m s


    60. Jose Lara

      I've been following these two for years and I'm so glad they get the recognition they deserve.

    61. A Bacon

      Also she doesn't look interested or in love. He really cares about his animal and does love her but I don't think this relationship will last long.

    62. A Bacon

      Tubs and glass enclosers are a controversial subject but just because people choose tubs it doesn't mean the can't take care of snakes

      1. Austin Thompson

        He was talking about a snake much too large for a tub being in a tub

    63. annie


    64. Emma Exum

      This is how I feel about pit bulls they are so misunderstood just like these snakes!!

      1. Theo Lopez

        Emma Exum i love pitties. had the sweetest boy who was 80 lbs. he loved everybody.

    65. John Ming

      I follow him on Instagram, and he’s awesome! He’s super knowledgeable about all of his animals, and he’s such an inspiration!

    68. Rocky Bettas


    69. I Like This Picture

      Taming these animals must be hard!

      1. CoffeePigeon

        AsHLiegH-MaRie HoPe you can help the snake realize that you are not a threat to them. When people tame snakes, it’s usually to make a defensive snake (a snake who is always in a strike position or trying to bite when you’re near or trying to handle them) understand that you are not a threat. It usually calms them down and make them not act defensive near you. I hope this all made sense :)

      2. AsHLiegH-MaRie HoPe

        You don't tame them ...
