SEBRING, FL (CBS46) -

A Florida woman is feeling the heat on social media after allowing a small snake to bite her 1 year-old daughter and then post a video of it to Facebook.

According to the CBS affiliate in Miami, the woman said her reason behind it was the snake had bit her son several times without leaving a mark and she thought she could "introduce" the girl to snakes without her getting hurt.

She posted the video to Facebook but has since deleted it.

The incident happened in Sebring, Florida, about 75 miles southeast of Tampa.
