Most of us are afraid of snakes and find it impossible to go near them without breaking a sweat and freaking out, but wouldn’t you love to get over that phobia and feel completely comfortable around them?
Facing fears head on is the best way to dissolve them and that’s exactly what this brave 19-year-old from the Philippines did, in spectacular fashion.
Her name is Sunshine, and she has had a life long phobia of snakes, so in an effort to overcome that she agreed to have a ‘massage’ with two massive pythons.
Photographer Ian Maclean came up with the idea and arranged the day to help Sunshine get up close and personal with her biggest fear. He took some awesome photos and footage of it which you can see below.
The pythons were fed a large meal of ten chickens each prior to the session, just in case they felt peckish and decided to feast on her.
After eating such a heavy meal the snakes were relaxed and friendly, allowing Sunshine to cuddle up to them without the fear of being eaten alive.
