My daughter is 16 months old and we have 13 snakes.. only one retic, which at them moment is only 4 ft long, but our biggest boa is 9ft. And she LOOOOVES them all. At first we just let her look, and never touch, babies, and my daughter inperticular has a low immune system, so just think, snakes slither all over they're fecal matter, so sanitation is a MUST, (snakes can transfer salmonella) :| But here recently we have allowed her to touch a few i feel comfortable with after we let them bathe in the tub, and then we still wash our hands and use PLEANTY of sanitizer. But i do 100% agree with everyone else, deff get locks on all your critters, and lock the door then put a hook at the top of the door once they can reach the knob... Children are curious by nature, and its very curtial that you do everything you can to make sure both your child and your animals are never put in harms way. and that best way is to introduce them and educate them... and NEVER take your eyes of them for a split second, because they will get into something they're not supposed to!! best of luck to you, your wife and the baby on the way. i hope you have a healthy little mess maker!
