Wow, so interesting to know there are studies out there that include testing venoms for heart disease. Life is so cool.
That is a stunning green. I don't like snakes but as long as they're in a photo and not loose in front of me they are really fascinating to look at.
Just beautiful. In this glorious photo the snake appears to be the mobile grass, the field come to life, one with the glorious earth.
yep love it until you get knocked out by one of these beauties... of my beloved country. Unfortunately sometimes while farming, you have to kill some of these beasts cuz it's either your life or theirs.... We got to work on this.
Yes, I live beside a swamp. We have cottonmouth water moccasins here. There are diamondback rattlesnakes in the mountains where I grew up. Sometimes you have to kill one, they are deadly, too. Still I love snakes!
