Carpet Python Snake – full 3D Sculpture
Cold-blooded Snakes consist of flexible backbones and dozens of pairs of ribs. One of the worlds most feared animals on earth. Why are we scared of snakes?
Various species of snakes have their own characteristics. Maybe the sheer size of snakes such as the boa constrictors and pythons have generated a deep fear of being slowly being crushed and squeezed to death. The snake’s ability to be swallowed whole due to the two halves of its upper and lower jaws that work independently of each other and allow the swallowing of prey whole at a size larger in diameter than the snake’s body.
Could it be the slithering movement and the scaled skin, or maybe it’s the fear of being attacked which seems like the speed of light by the fangs that are filled with poison from their salivary glands that can puncture and immobilize their prey? These specialist functions are necessary to protect the snake from its enemies and are an effective way to capture its prey.
Love them or fear them, snakes form a key link in the food chain, They act as predators and as prey. They help maintain a healthy ecosystem and environment. If you take time to appreciate the beauty of this animal you might see the unique colours and patterns be admired although from afar.
