Breed : Barons Green Racer (Argentina / Bolivia)
Info : If you like your snakes, then this will be a particularly interesting specimen to choose for your therapy snake. Guaranteed to raise a conversation and promote social interaction. Although he is currently only a young snake (but still around 2-2.5 feet in length), he will grow to about the same size as a corn snake
Benefits : Therapy snakes give 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 !
