Thank you all for the compliments

My son is just coming up for 12 but he's been around snakes for a long while now.

In my experience with both my own kids and the sessions I've done with playgroups/ schools etc. The fear is a learned behavior - the kids (the younger the more so) are usually ok with the snakes - it's the adults that freak out! lol

That's exactly right. No one would be afraid of snakes if they were all raised to love them. ((Well, by no one, I mean they'd be as accepted as dogs. Some people who get attacked would still be scared, but the majority of people wouldn't be.)) My boys will be raised around snakes all their lives.

My wife took our daughter to a birthday party today ( she is 6 ). They have a few vivs at the party place visited with leopard geckos, beardies, a boa, a royal and a spider. My daughters reaction...."wow....so cool." the other girls and their mums for the most part...."eww!!!". Apparently my little girl looked at them like they were from another planet. She couldn't understand how they could react like that.....the obvious and very sad answer...copying their mums reaction.

I am so proud of my little girl.

Shes got more common sense in her little finger than that whole room of adults.

Another new baby? Your wife is going to kill you one day =)

I feel like we must be connected in some way because every time you get a new snake, I just happen to log back on to see it... it's funny how the snake world works! lol
