Today is National Serpent Day

Today is National Serpent Day
Across religions and cultures, the serpent has been used as a symbol of evil, medicine, fertility, and much more. Recognizing serpents and snakes alike, February 1st observes National Serpent Day. Around the world, there are over 3,000 species of snakes. The world’s smallest snake is the Barbados thread snake. This serpent is smaller than a night crawler at about 4 inches. In comparison, the longest snake is the reticulated python and the heaviest is the green anaconda. Ready for some facts? Only 1/8 of the known species are venomous. Their upper and lower jaw separate to allow snakes to consume prey up to three times larger than the diameter of their head. Snakes eat their prey whole. Most snakes are nocturnal. Their tongue is used to smell their air. Snakes are cold-blooded, or ectotherms, and must sun themselves to regulate their body temperatures. Source: nationaldaycalendar.com
