July 16th World Snake Day

There are 3400 species of snakes in the world. Just like with people, there are good snakes and bad snakes. Most of us don’t like snakes much, me included, but they are here, and we have to deal with them. A python can grow up to 30 feet long, an anaconda can weigh up to 550 pounds. Neither is actually a bad snake; they don’t hunt people… but if one gets in their way… well. We as people have always put the snake down ever since the Garden of Eden. If you give a snake a wide path they will generally leave you alone. Imagine what you look like to them, now that’s scary!

How to celebrate – If you see a snake, avoid it. List as many snakes as you can and see how close you get to the 3,400 species. Watch out when you eat an apple.
