Conquer your Fear of Snakes and Reptiles
Ophidiophobia or ophiophobia is a type of phobia or fear of snakes. It is sometimes called by a more general term, herpetophobia, fear of reptiles. This is one of the most common phobias, which is right up there in the polls with having a fear of public speaking, effecting more than 50% of Americans! The good news is that this phobia is also treatable with a little TLC, patience and some help from your friends here at New England Reptile Shows.
Can You “Get Over” a Snake Phobia?
Yes! For people who suffer from a fear of snakes, the best forms of treatment are desensitization and exposure therapy. During our shows we strive to spread awareness about these amazing animals in a safe and engaging environment, but we never force anyone to come close or touch anything if they are not comfortable. We have found that at every show that we do there is at least on person who leaves the show having a new found appreciation of reptiles. With countless numbers of studies and information on this phobia, we have come to understand one thing; education and exposure are the ultimate key in helping someone conquer their fears.
