Ten-year-old Jenny Baker watches as an albino reticulated python, a snake native to tropical asia, investigates an audience member's hand during Rick Roth's "Snakes of New England & the World" presentation Friday at the T.O.H.P. Burnham Free Library in Essex. Roth, executive director of the Rockport-based Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team, introduced the awestruck audience of about 50 children to a variety of the slithery creatures.
