February 1st National Serpent Day

There are people that love snakes, none that I know, but they are out there. I think the worst fear of snakes involves the idea that you don’t ever know what to expect from them. They do serve a useful purpose though by keeping the insect and rodent population down. They have been associated with evil ever since the Garden of Eden. One wonders if our thoughts about them would be different if it had been a donkey that tempted Eve. We will never know. There are some 3,400 types of snakes across the world.

How to celebrate – Learn what snakes thrive in your area. Avoid snakes where you can. Learn which snakes are dangerous where you live and which ones aren’t.

JULY 16th World Snake Day

Here’s a day most of us would rather not celebrate, World Snake Day. Yes, snakes do have their place and they do serve a purpose keeping down the rodent and insect population and they can be kinda cool to watch… but only from a distance! There are 3,400 species of snakes and I can tell you I don’t like any of them. I think that’s because they are very unpredictable and they always look mad for some reason. But then we have to remember, we are probably pretty scary to them as well so I guess it’s sort of a mutual respect thing.

How to celebrate – Really, however you want to celebrate it is fine just leave me out of it. Learn about the “good snakes” and the “bad snakes”. Don;t make an Asp out of yourself.

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.

July 16th World Snake Day

There are people that love snakes, none that I know, but they are out there. I think the worst fear of snakes involves the idea that you don’t ever know what to expect from them. Oh ya, and… they aren’t exactly cute and cuddly. They do serve a useful purpose though by keeping the insect and rodent population down. I’m sort of one of those that doesn’t care for snakes too much. They are sort of like that medicine that you hate to take even though you know it makes you feel better. They have been associated with evil ever since the Garden of Eden. One wonders if our thoughts about them would be different if it had been a donkey that tempted Eve. We will never know. There are some 3,400 types of snakes across the world. Not all are dangerous but enough are that you need to avoid them unless you are a snake expert. And even they tend to make critical mistakes when they handle them. Respect the snake, give it’s place and will will 9 out of ten times give you yours.

How to celebrate – Learn what snakes thrive in your area. Avoid snakes where you can. Learn which snakes are dangerous where you live and which ones aren’t.
