invictus, considering you look like rob zombie and a little like Jesus (but let concentrate more on the rob zombie analogy) you wouldn't think you would be scared of a little t. just give it a shot man! i am a snake person inside out but t. are relay docile creatures. just think if you where trying to get someone to hold a snake and they didn't want to would you think that they should just try it before they rule it out? just try it sometime, it will probably come as a big relief when/if you get over it.
