Ophidiophobia: Do you have a snake phobia?

Then perhaps you better look away now...

This boy didn't

Actual exchange between them (with very strong 'dubalin' accents):
Boy: Ahhh he won't go in ta me tee-shurt!
Girl: Well, he probly doesn't want to smell yer sweahh!
This boy didn't...

and typically, this blogger didn't either...

How about you?

I don't mean to make light of this phobia by the way. This was a small, harmless corn snake. I googled the phobia and found Haven Hypnotherapy in Dublin who may be able to help.


  1. Is there anything you won't do, Darragh?!

  2. Hey Andy, thanks for the comment!

    Plenty I won't do... yet. But most (legal) things are up for grabs. :-P

  3. i dont mind snakes at all, which is odd for a girl. hate spiders though. go all weak in the knees over spiders

  4. I know I can make a dirty comment here. I just know it......

  5. I had a huge snake placed around my neck by the "entertainment group" when I was in Tunisia. I was completely bricking it, but one I got it removed I was delighted I managed to sit there and although I though I would be all slimey and stuff I actually felt very clean. It was a frightening but good experience.

    Lottie leave the durty comments alone, lol!

  6. I've never had the pleasure of meeting a real live snake. Not quite sure how I would handle it.

    I've held a tranantula before which I never thought I would do before but the experience was actually quite fun!

    Fair play Darragh!

  7. The first pic with you in it looks like you're not just holding a snake, but a tiny woman and her child too.

  8. Oh my God Darren, I didn't know what you were talking about until I looked back and I literally LOL'd. That's amazing.

  9. Darragh Doyle - Superbeing!

  10. Give me a snake over tight spaces anyday!

  11. have to say im not afraid of them but i would be weirded out by snakes!

    Your a brave brave man !
    ANd look at that fearless 10 year old fecker!
