P.S...I wish I had this little trick in my bag when the naturalist from Hamilton County Parks came into the class with the snake.

As an ECE teacher, there will be times that things the children think our fascinating are 100% disgusting. As a science teacher, you might even be introducing this material. It is important to capture the children's fascination and help them learn from it. And they will notice if you are 100% disgusted and likely follow suite. One of my classmates had a great suggestion. Instead of saying "ewww" "gross" or "yuck" say "how interesting". Have the children do the same. Happy Science-teaching.
