Indonesian girl calmly watches cartoons on phone while covered head to toe in snakes

A little Indonesian girl calmly watched videos on a smartphone while covered in huge snakes.

It is not young Maharani's first brush with animal video fame, having previously been filmed brushing a crocodile's teeth.

The extraordinary scene was filmed in Tangerang, a suburb of Indonesia's capital Jakarta on June 21.

In total, six snakes - all different types of python - are seen slithering over Maharani. They include the green tree python, the reticulated python and the yellow burmese python.

According to her father, Maharani was at the time watching the "Upin & Ipin" animated series created in Malaysia and popular in southeast Asia.
