9-Year-Old Snake Handler Krista Guarino

KRISTA: I’m never afraid of snakes, not even a little bit. I’m crazy for snakes. LAURA: I really don’t like them at all. they, they kinda freak me out. COMM: Most nine year old girls enjoy playing with dolls. But Kirsta Guarino from Michigan
is one of a kind. She prefers snakes, and lives with thirty of them. JAMIE: It’s just an anaconda, c’mon, it’s harmless. KRISTA: Ow! MAN: How do you feel? KRISTA: Um…excited. 00:32
COMM: Krista gets her love of snakes from dad Jamie, and held her first when she was
just two years old. 00:38
JAMIE: It was her third word y’know snake, she would always point and just say snake!
And i just knew right then and there she was gonna be, y’know this was gonna be her passion.
I could just tell. COMM: Since then she’s developed a natural talent for snake handling. Some are twice
her size and known to bite. COMM: But it hasn’t put her off, even when she was out hunting for rattlesnakes. 01:08
JAMIE: Oh it’s a rattle! KRISTA: Oh cool!
JAMIE: All right we’re gonna release them far away from people. JAMIE: He loves you. COMM: Mum Ashli isn’t a big fan of snakes. JAMIE: Hold him! C’mon! ASHLI: No! You guys do what you want but I think you’re crazy. COMM: And grandmother Laura isn’t happy with Krista’s hobby. LAURA: It bothers me a lot, to me I’m afraid she’s going to get bit, hurt, who knows strangled.
It really upsets me, a lot. JAMIE: I’ve had some specific negative comments towards Krista and snakes, y’know “You shouldn’t
let your daughter be around those evil serpents, she could get killed and strangled” and y’know
some ridiculous comments and I just have to come back with y’know you’re not educated
at all, she’s never put in danger so y’know I kinda get mad but I laugh at them. COMM: Today Krista dedicates most of her free time to her favourite animal. JAMIE: You ready to feed all these? Krista: Yep. COMM: And she even helps out at the reptile centre where Jamie works. JAMIE: Hey Krista how’s it going over here? KRISTA: I only got one more left. JAMIE: One left? All right feed them up because
it’s time to feed some alligators. KRISTA: Cool. BRIGAN: Even though Krista is very young I think she probably knows more about snakes
than I do. Her knowledge is insane, she’s so smart. COMM: Despite her young years Krista already has her future planned out as the owner of
a reptile zoo. KRISTA: I wanna teach people about reptiles, I wanna have every kind of reptile in the
world. COMM: And she’s determined to prove that snakes aren’t as bas as we think. KRISTA: Some people, they’re afraid of them and they like kill ’em, and I don’t want no-one
to kill snakes because they’re cool and interesting.
