That’s no toy! Little Charlie Parker is only three-years-old but that hasn’t stopped him from swimming in the gator pool!

An expert reptile wrangler, the tiny tot comes from a long line of park rangers who own and run the Ballarat Wildlife Park in Victoria, Australia.

Charlie’s dad, Greg Parker, who owns the park says,

“We didn’t go out to encourage it but he just loves reptiles. Like everybody he’s frightened of some things.. others not so much.”

Charlie’s favorites at the park are, Gump, the restrained snout baby alligator you see him handling above and a boa constrictor named Pablo.

Well, we’re glad Charlie is a third generation animal handler because if our kids so much as thought about picking up a snake or a gator, we’re not sure if we’d be able to encourage that!

Just hope they keep a watchful eye on that kid cuz as we all know, animals are prone to attack.
