This visitor asked the folks from the visiting Chicago Herpetological Society if he could hold a snake to help him overcome his fear of them. Looks like it worked! (Yes, snakes, lizards, turtles and other mysterious creatures are among the animals impounded at the city shelter. They are turned over quickly to rescues like the Chicago Herpetological Society and Flint Creek Wildlife Sanctuary who can provide proper care.)
