I feel it depends on the child. we let my cousins 6 month old touch (not hold) the harmless end of our burmese python under supervision to make sure she doesn't put the snakes tail in her mouth. We have 3 adults for this, one to wrangle the child, 2 for the snake. I wouldn't let her handle a corn snake (can you say squish?) or a similarly sized snake. Of course we would never do anything with a venomous snake.

May you live in interesting times.
