Funnily enough I always used to but recently spent four years living and working in Arizona, where seeing rattlesnakes was an almost daily occurrence. That cured me. But....if I have a dream that involves a snake, then I wake up in a cold sweat!

:panic: I held all kinds of snakes. Boas are sweet snakes. I just don't like feeding them.

Idk I'd kill it if it bit me. I got bit one time at Edison park. By a gardaner snake. I think that's the right spelling. It didn't hurt but I felt strange about it. I threw it on a log. Another time at edison park there was a huge one rattling. I took video of it. I ran away. And my one friend (who recently passed) had snakes. Tons. And then there was the fair. I held one there after I did the shooting range. But that one was nice. It's a boa. I think I might want one.

It all depends... I've picked up snakes outside, grass snakes and adders and slowworms which are like snakes but lizards without legs.

They can be a little freaky the way they move and I'd be totally freaked out if one was in my house but outside or in a pet shop they are generally ok once you handle them.
