Default kidís snake party

I did a snake demo at a kidís party this last weekend. This young lad did not take kindly to the idea of live snakes.



Always keep it entertaining because boredom is the enemy.

I do interactive snake Education Awareness with a variety of species. Some non-venomous animals I use to interact in different degrees with the kids under my strict personal supervision so to soften the initial fear and apprehension.
This gives the audience insight that these creatures are living feeling animals that will react to stimuli.

Other species I show are highly venomous and are used to motivate a respectful warning that not all snakes commonly found in and around the back yard are friendly and Ďcuddlyí.
Even three year old South African kids are able to understand the conservative aspect and respect that human ignorance is the enemy and not the snake encounter.

Wouldnt be a bad thing to do more of it over here tbh, dont they say fears are caused at an early age? and then follow in to adulthood, up untill a year ago i was terrified by snakes, but to overcome it I just brought one or two, now I have time for any snake,(with the exception of corns)
