A friend from school, Rob, was able to also come out and help us, which was wonderful because we had so many people to talk to and entertain.

My favourite thing about talking to people is telling them all these really cool facts about snakes and also listening to Jenny talk about the snakes and learning even more from her. For example, who knew that a painted turtle can breathe through it's butt! She is such an enthusiastic personality with so much knowledge, it's no wonder she does this for a living because it suits her so well. I really am so lucky to have met and be able to help her out!

A lot of people are incredible cautious when first approaching us, some even scream when they first see a snake in our hands! After talking to them for a while, explaining that unless A) you were a mouse, rat, frog, or other thing they eat or B) really threatening them, that a snake wont bite you; or that its using it's tongue to smell you not to taste you because snakes rely heavily on their sense of smell to know what is around them. So many kids, as well as adults were really curious and asked so many questions. I really love it when people ask questions and really engage! Even a few people were able to get over their fear for the first time and touch, sometimes even hold, one of our snakes. It's a really exciting thing to be able to be a part of.
