I don’t know about you, but I find snakes to be extremely calming.  I have always loved them.  I must have the gene, because although my parents loathed snakes, my cousin became a herpetologist.  So it’s in there somewhere.  I am an expert in the human-animal bond and one of the most fun studies I ran across in the course of my doctoral dissertation was the beneficial effects of a pet snake on physiological stress response.  If you are interested I will post the citation in this forum. You all seem like the sort of folks that might resonate with this.
