Matt Teaches His Son About Snake Handling

In a viral video, netizens saw Matt's two-year-old son, Banjo handling the Olive Python in the Northern Territory in 2021. His father guided him while the kid was trying to pull the python across the grass, but it wrapped itself around a wooden pole.

While it may look extremely dangerous for people who saw the video for the first time, some may not find it weird as he is the son of the man who captures and relocates dangerous animals such as crocodiles, snakes, and wild buffalo, as mentioned in Canberra Times.

In addition, the snake was not venomous, and their bites are harmless to humans, although they are often killed because many misunderstand them as venomous King Brown Snake.
