He's only two years old but Charlie Parker isn't rattled by getting tied up by a boa constrictor - even though his little legs might wobble under the weight of mighty 10kg Pablo.
Charlie comes from a three generations of animal carers who own and run the Ballarat Wildlife Park in Victoria, Australia and he's grown up at the sanctuary. Pablo - who measures 2.5m long - is one of his favourite animals at the park.
Proud dad and park owner Greg Parker says: "We're still shocked by his natural ability with the animals.
"It's quite remarkable to watch - he has absolutely no fear of them and he doesn't just handle them, he also has the knowledge.
"We've never purposely exposed him to the animals - he's just got this obsession with snakes and lizards. It must be genetic."
