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.
