like I said, pad locked door, put a clip board and "sign in and out" so you know who was the last one in there. Have one of those stoppers on the bottom.
That way IF there is an escape it can't get out.
There is always risk, there is also the risk that the cat could suffocate the child, or even a dog that could jump in the crib(and not only suffocate the child, but crush it if the dog is large enough), Or a house fly going down his/her throat.
Just take extreme caution when dealng with larger snakes and children, it is common sense.
