Snakes slither on Dave Barras as expert talks

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – It’s always an adventure when animal expert Larry Battson visits 24-Hour News 8 at noon, and Monday was no exception.

Battson brought in a variety of snakes that took the opportunity to wrap themselves around WISH-TV Anchor Dave Barras.

The largest of the snakes Battson had with him was a small Burmese python, which Barras admitted made him most fearful.

Despite the fear, Barras pushed through and the snakes behaved. Press play in the video player to see how it all unfolded.
