Michael understands that there is fear and fascination with reptiles.

  • For this reason:
  • He is always aware of and acknowledges that fear of reptiles is perfectly acceptable.
  • He goes out of his way to protect those that may be afraid.
  • He points out where the exits are in case someone feels the need to leave the room (He prefers the exits be behind the audience rather than behind him).
  • He does not approach people with the animals, he allows people to approach him.
  • He has a rule that no one may scare anyone with one of his animals.
  • He lets people know when he is bringing out lizards and when he is bringing out snakes.
  • Everyone gets an opportunity to pet the animals or just look at them closely, whatever their comfort level
