Breed : Brazilian Rainbow Boa
Info : The second of our rainbow boas, and considered by many to be THE most beautiful snake in the world. Rainbow boas make for a fascinating choice of therapy snake, as they have a beautiful iridescence to the skin caused by microscopic ridges on the scales which act like prisms
Benefits : A therapy snake gives a 3 dimensional therapy experience : From the initial anticipation, and understandable caution (like waiting in line for a rollercoaster), therapy clients find the movement of a snake both relaxing and exciting (like the ride !!) When stroking the snake, they find him relaxing. Watching a snake is really quite fascinating, and invites conversation between participants. Therapy with a snake is amazing for enhancing and increasing confidence and self esteem !
