I teach middle school science and last Monday took seven of my snakes to class right after christmas break. I find it a good way to get the students attention. There are three types of reactions to the snakes. Some students love them, some are a little leary of them, and some don't want the snakes anywhere near them.I think I converted some of the leary ones. The students bring some unbelievable stories that they swear are true. One boy said he was told snakes seek out pregnant women to nurse from. It had to be true because his grandmother told him it was. Oh well I keep trying to teach them. Buddy.
