Breed : Honduran Milk Snake (Central America)
Info : Tango is a very brightly coloured therapy snake – quite large – a lot of clients think that his colouring denotes him as venomous, but he really is not. His bright colour gives him his name – choose this therapy critter and you can say that you have well and truly been “Tango’ed”!!
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 !
