Mothers have an innate urge to defend their young. They care for their offspring for a long period of time, and that creates a bond between the two that will remain strong forever. In the wild, children are generally their mother’s number one priority.

If you make the mistake of attempting to disrupt a mother’s care for her kids, you better be sure there will be consequences. One snake handler found this out the hard way…

As the handler attempted to grab the eggs out from underneath an enormous mother snake, he quickly realized she was not pleased.

One snake handler learned through experience the dangers of toying with a mother’s offspring.
