Four stages of snake love

We spent a little time playing in the rain with friends at a local ecology festival (EcoFest 2011 at Clark Botanic Garden) this weekend. A strange man with a large snake offered to touch his pet's face to our precious toddler's head. Though we didn't know this guy or his credentials, we felt reassured by his resemblance to acclaimed animal enthusiast Brian Fellow, and jumped at the chance. I'm not going to lie...there was a good deal of the "will they/won't they" tension (think Jim & Pam).  Here's how it played out...

stage 1: hesitant

stage 2: interested

stage 3: a little forked tongue action

stage 4: JOY!
