We all know that parents aren't perfect. They're just human beings and sharing what you love with your children is a parent's right and privilege. When that passion involves swimming with sharks or playing with snakes, has that right been abused?

We couldn't help but cringe when we watched these 4 shocking videos of children in seemingly dangerous situations. But we want to know what you think. Watch the videos below.

Playing with gorillas

Tansy Aspinall was 18 months old when her father let her play with "man's closest cousin". She seems calm and the gorillas carry her around like she's one of them but she could've been in real danger. Do you agree?

Steve Irwin feeds the crocs...

...while holding his 1-month-old son, Bob. In this video, Steve Irwin holds his very young baby who falls around in his arms. It immediately brought to mind Michael Jackson holding his baby over balcony. Steve defends himself but what do you think?

Little girl swims with sharks

A 5-year-old girl and her parents take a swim with sharks after watching them being fed. The parents have closed comments on this YouTube video due to a lot of negativity. Do you think they were putting her in danger?

Playing with snakes

This shocking video shows a baby "playing" with a cobra. Even though the snake repeatedly strikes the little girl on her head, she isn't moved or snatched away. It's scary! What do you think?

Do you think nature-loving parents put their children at risk?
