Josephine Pfahl, 8, is not afraid of snakes.

The Cherokee Elementary student handled a small albino corn snake while her grandmother kept a safe distance.

Pfahl was attending the Park District of Highland Park’s Autumn Fest at Heller Nature Center Sept. 20 as she says she does every year.

“I really love reptiles,” she said. “It’s really beautiful here and the snakes are also really beautiful.”
