    Isn't that one of those vicious poisonous critters? Then there is the snake.

    Please be careful with those kinds of teachings, not that they are wrong but my cousin who was about 2 at the time came into the house and said a worm had bitten her. They finally got out of her that a worm had bitten the dog and she tried to get the worm away. The dog died and my cousin almost did. The worm was about the same size as the one in the picture and looks like my cousin was about the same age.

    Be sure she knows not to try it on her own.

    I have more of a problem with a 2 year old being left outside by herself than a little girl holding a harmless snake.

    I spent a good amount of my youth handling reptiles, both venomous and not. To a child many of them will look similar. Just make sure she doesn't try to handle snakes alone before she's old enough to identify them. (Size REALLY doesn't matter here.)
