To finish off our "Face Your Fears" segments, Ryan tackles his fear of snakes! And he gets to do it LIVE. We begin with Ryan's "confessional" about how his fears got started, and how he really feels about facing his fears. And of course, we re-run Val's "surprise" at the top of Thursday's show - when she had a live snake on his chair! Thanks to Chicago Reptile House in Orland Park for providing the "surprise" which was a ball python. Check out their website here: http://www.chicagoreptile.net/
Then, we bring in Dr. Barbara Royal, a Chicago veterinarian who is an internationally known pioneer in complementary medicine - and has worked with pets and zoos from around the world. Dr. Royal gives us some of the myths behind the fear of snakes and the do's and don'ts of approaching these reptiles.

And finally, from a small corn snake - up to a 6' boa constrictor - Ryan finally faces his fears!!
