My wife and I are going to start trying ot have a kid this year. it's got me very nervous in general (all the standard stuff--will I be a good dad, can we afford it, what about genetic health problems, all that crap). I'm also wondering about the larger pythons. I'm not sure how we're going to rearrange the house yet, but we're going to have to at least somewhat.

I konw some of ya'll got kids; how do you go about introducing them to the snakes? I know it isn't something you do real soon (for god's sakes, my pythons eat rabbits the size of some human neonates). But I want the kid to be comftorable about dad's animals. What age do ya'll start introducing them? How do you do it? Any pitfalls?



in a related note I finally need to buy a gun safe :-/ boo.
