Ever since I was a little kid I have always been facsinated with
snakes. They are amazing creatures with an adaptation to
survival that is only surpassed by insects. My outlook on things
is, the more you know and understand something, the better
prepared you are to handle it's consequences.
Fear and Old Wives tales create a total misconception of
reptiles. As with all preditor species, snakes only kill to eat or
protect themselves. Because of their body design, they have
developed many unique ways to accomplish this.
For those of you out there that have a great fear or intrest in
snakes, the Internet is full of many good sites that can help you
to get any information you want on most any species you want.
Use your search engine and just enter reptiles, snakes, or the
name of the species you want and you'll get enough sites to
keep you busy  for a few days.
