I routinely take several of my snakes to an area school for science class. It's for 7th grade, but usually ends up being pretty much all the upper grades. I have one snake, a BP, that the kids are allowed to touch, but no handling. The parents are aware that I will be there, and some of them come as well. But if someone's child gets bit, no matter who's falut it is, ultimately "I" am responsible. Do I want to get sued? NO. But even more, I do not want bad publicity for snake keeping nor do I want other children to be afraid of snakes if they see a friend get bit. Just not worth it in my book.
