Snakes. by Monster-Boar Snakes. by Monster-Boar

Snakes are elongate, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the
suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless
lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears. Many
species of snakes have skulls with many more joints than
their lizard ancestors, enabling them to swallow prey
much larger than their heads with their highly mobile
jaws.

Living snakes are found on every continent except
Antarctica and on most islands. Fifteen families are
currently recognized, comprising 456 genera and over
2,900 species. They range in size from the tiny, 10 cm-long
thread snake to pythons and anacondas of up to 25 ft in length.

Most species are nonvenomous and those that have
enom use it primarily to kill and subdue prey rather than for
self-defense. Some possess venom potent enough to cause
painful injury or death to humans. Nonvenomous snakes
either swallow prey alive or kill by constriction.

I have a pet boa constrictor.

She is dog-tame and very good with children.

Needless to say I agree and I despise people too narrow-minded to accept them as living creatures instead of demonspawn.

Do you exactly know how snake venom works? How it kills you?

Often snake venom creates reactions in the body that stop blood flow and clotting and cause great damage to the muscular and nervous system. If it is potent enough, it will get into vital places in your body through your blood (heart, brain, kidneys) and poison them.

I remember watching a YouTube video once, they took a sample of a Snake's venom, put it at a blood sample, mixed it up a bit, and the blood turned to Jell-o. Isn't science amazing?

Do you like Jell-o? :3

It is some scary stuff. I'm more of a chocolate person myself, but my bro is obsessed with Jello.
