3-year-old Charlie Parker has now been dubbed Australia’s youngest wildlife ranger.
Charlie, who’s seen in the video below with his pet, a hefty sized alligator named Gump has a penchant for wild reptiles, including boa constrictors, cobras, and yes, alligators.
The boy’s interest in these wild animals is not too far-fetched, as his dad is Greg Parker, owner of Ballarat Wildlife Park in Victoria, Australia.
“We didn’t go out to encourage it but he just loves reptiles,” the proud dad explained in the Youtube video description. “Like everybody he’s frightened of some things… others not so much.”
