Yesterday was world snake day so here is my belated appreciation post. Here is a banded watersnake from this past winter that I really enjoyed. Snakes are one of those ornate creature we share the Earth with that a lot of people tend to give a menacing persona too. This is mostly due to a lack of knowledge… which for whatever reason makes people think that the only way to cope with this lack of knowledge is to attempt to kill snakes. Just taking 15 minutes of your day to instead of mindlessly scrolling through Instagram to just inform yourself briefly on some local herpetofauna in your area and how important the roll they play is instead of just assuming that your irrational folklore inspired “facts” on the snake are true. #worldsnakeday

TODAY IS WORLD SNAKE DAY

Let’s brush up on some snake facts to celebrate and keep our little buddies safe in the wild.

- Snakes are Hella important for the ecosystem.
They keep mice, rats, squirrels and other pests from over populating the area. Do you want a shit tonne of mice in your house? Or even rats?! I don’t think so!

- Snakes are cold blooded, they need to warm up!
If you see a snake out in the morning in your garden, or somewhere like that, LEAVE IT ALONE. It will not hurt you, it is only interested in getting it’s well needed heat for the day. As soon as it’s warmed up, 9/10 times it will leave. I promise you.

- All snakes are powerful in their own way, and deserve respect.
(This is a given, because every animal deserves respect.)
Snakes either kill their prey by constriction, or a venomous bite. Sometimes even both. This leads on to one the most important fact.

- SNAKES WILL NOT ATTACK YOU UNPROVOKED.
Snakes do not like confrontation, it is very rare they will attack humans for no reason. We’re too big, and even for the huge ones, we don’t taste the best. There are easier targets for them, we are far more likely to kill them. They know this. They are very very smart in that aspect.

With that in mind, let’s keep our little legless buddies safe, and keep them thriving in the wild! Have a great day everybody! :D
