Though usually docile, the 6-foot fox snake at Quarry Hill Nature Center can look intimidating. However, when a 6-year-old child holds the snake, it doesn’t look so scary.

When Andrew Pruett volunteers at Quarry Hill Nature Center, he often brings his young son, Theodore, with him. Seeing Theodore handle the snake can help the more squeamish visitors.

“When people see Theodore with a big snake, it’s like, ‘How can I be afraid of it?’” said Jill Danielsen, Quarry Hill volunteer coordinator.
