My son on the other hand does not. He found a little garter snake the other day when we were playing outside near the water. I told him "that's neat bud" while slowing backing away. A cabin guest, Doug, on the other hand stopped and grabbed the snake and held it so Nate could touch it. With no fear, Nate decided to hold it as well.
Anyway, later that day our fun activity was to play with some play-doh and of course what did Nate want to make. Snakes. Oh, and a big sandwich.
