Children are both trusting and brave, or at least braver than most adults.
I certainly didn't want to touch the snake but the grandkids did. In fact, they were fascinated, probably because our guide was so matter-of-fact about handling all manner of phobia inducing fauna.
Albino catfish and turtle fascinates a one year old.
We don't get to see these kids very often so this was a special time for us. Didn't get many Christmas pictures because little kids move so fast and I was enjoying the moments too. So we had two Christmases one in Alabama and one in Texas. How cool is that!
