I asked to have a hold. Clearly I was out of my mind, but I had watched the little boy with his smaller pet snake (yes there were two) and he treated it like a rubber snake, they way he held it, let it sit on the floor and talked about it. It just didn't seem real! So my bravado kicked into high gear and thus resulted the photos you see on the left. The snake was quite heavy and I was astonished as to how cold it was. The snake happily checked out my jacket and sniffed the flowers in my hear. It poked it's tongue a few times and then decided to curl up in the hood on my jacket. I guess it was nice and cozy. It was at that moment that I opened my eyes and turned to look left. Well Mr Snake was coming around to great me and planted a huge kiss on my left cheek - I nearly squeeled. I decided the hug was over and Mr Snake could go back to his little (slightly nuts!) owner.
I truly don't know what possessed me, but like any little kid, I couldn't wait to tell my mum and freak her out with the photos. She's absolutely petrified of snakes!
Have you had any close encounters of the WILD kind before?
