A young California girl is seen swimming with a large albino Burmese python owned as a family pet in a YouTube video that has gone viral.
 
Corey Wallace, who posted the video to YouTube, is the snake's owner and said the family pet has "has been to over 500 birthday parties and many schools," as he writes in the video's description.
 
Wallace's daughter is seen in the video swimming with Sumatra, the giant snake. In the video, the girl pets and swims around the snake in a small pool.
 
According to Wallace, the snake won't eat live food. Wallace wrote that he had to kill a chicken before the snake would eat it.
 
"She has never killed anything she even likes our dogs and cat," he wrote.
 
Surprisingly, the video was posted in 2014 but just started to circulate on social media this week.
