My doesnt really care either way, he wont touch them or hold them.. but he isnt afraid.
My mother is deathly afraid of my snakes :D But she doesnt live with my anymore, so she dosent have to see the often :D
My sibings on the other hand, LOVE my reptiles. Theyre ALWAYS asking to hold them or come into my room and look at them, espsecially my bearded dragon. One sister is slightly afraid of my burmese python, but that's only because two years ago he bit her.. she has handling him when I wasnt around, she learned her lesson about playing with my things!
