My cousin’s kids visited the farm today, and they wanted to hold all the snakes, so I let them hold (or at least touch) my three best scaled kids. The kids were not very good at holding snakes but they were very enthusiastic about it, and I think that definitely counts.
Probably the cutest thing was, after seeing me hold Isis (the BIG snake) over one shoulder (like you’re supposed to with big sneks), I brought out whitesnake (the tiny baby corn snake) and Jo immediately put her over one shoulder the same way. Of course, whitesnake is wiggly and turned herself into a necklace, but Jo tried.
