August11: Most of the time kids with behavior issues just need to focus outside themselves. This is a great idea.
wxboy: D) Dingo. "You'd better straighten up or we'll release this dingo into the classroom."
Sidecrab: It's always C. Put them in a different order for once!
psyon: I do hands on programs with snakes at a local nature center. One of the local youth centers brings in a group of kids every year. Last year, one of the girls fell in love with my Macklot's Python, and pretty much held it the entire time. The counselors that were with her said it was the most calm she had ever been the whole time she was there.

danceswithcrows: Seriously, it's interesting that at least some kids behave better/do better when they are around reptiles or can care for reptiles. If it helps the kids and isn't insanely expensive, then let's get some tortoises and bearded dragons in the schools. I'd personally prefer mammals (gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs, rats....) because they often like to be petted/held/played with, and kids like that. However, IIRC reptiles are a bit more tolerant of neglect since they usually don't need to eat every day, and that may be one of the reasons they're using reptiles.
