London: A three-year-old boy in Australia has developed an unusual charm to play with an alligator or snake.
While most kids love a game of snap, Charlie Parker wrestles Gump, the alligator, for fun at his dad's zoo, a daily reported on Monday.

At times when he is not doing that, Parker - who comes from three generations of naturalists - likes to drape a giant boa constrictor, a snake that kills its prey by coiling tightly around it and causing suffocation, around his neck.

Charlie's father Greg, who runs Ballarat Wildlife Park, outside Melbourne, said: "We didn't go out to encourage it."

"Charlie just loves reptiles - his favourites are snakes and crocodiles."
