Well I did a class presentation

I went to my sisters grade 6 class with my Ball python. handed out some sheds and only 2 kids in the class were afraid of the snake, the rest were like "me me I want to hold the snake" I let everyone that wanted to touch the snake. I even got the teacher who was afraid of snakes to hold the snake and one kid took a picture of her for the class wall. Its good to see that most of these kids didnt already have a ingrained fear of snakes. I would have brought the other snakes in but I wouldnt trust them to go around a class room without stressing and biting someone they want me to comeback another time but I want the second time to be better then the first any suggestions?

Ps Some of the kids knew something about snakes that impressed me quite a bit One was asking about Af rocks and why they were so "mean" I thought that was great

Congrats on everything going so well!
I just found homes for my 4 snake ladies: ball python, colombian boa, hogg isle boa, and a burmese. *sniff* How I miss them so...

How do I set my laser printer to 'stun'?

I get that kind of thing with me nephews too! I mean, they aren't really exposed to the hobby (except through me) so how do they know these things?? Its baffles me and astonishes me all at the same time!

That's great man!

Thats awesome
I was thinking of doing the same in my little brother and sisters class.
I think a lot of kids watch shows like the crocodile hunter and the jeff corwin show. I think these shows are responsible for the young generations knowledge and understanding of reptiles.
It's not that I'm lazy; it's that I just don't care.

Awesome! The only suggestion I would have is have a hand washing session after for anyone touching the snake. I would say this is essential and mandatory.
