Dave Spencer May Have Conquered a Fear of Snakes at, of All Places, the Owensboro Parent Bash [VIDEO]
First of all, I'm happy to report that the Owensboro Parent Magazine 3rd Birthday Party Bash at the RiverPark Center was a huge success. Second, I may have conquered a fear.
There were many booths and activities at the party and the RiverPark was a packed house.
One of those booths featured staff from Evansville's Mesker Park Zoo who brought with them an Egyptian tortoise, a bearded dragon, and a couple of Kenyan sand boa constrictors.
Normally, I have always been incredibly squeamish when it comes to snakes, but as you saw in the video, I had no issues with petting one of those boas. Of course, it was a controlled environment and that may have helped. But I don't think I would have been able to go near that table if what I had could even remotely be considered a phobia.
So, yes, I will always be respectful of snakes, and I don't want to come up on one in a rural setting, just in case. But paralyzing fear? Nope. Not even close.
