I love snakes! I used to catch and bring in little garter snakes as a kid, and my mom would freak out. I tried my best to "hide" them from her in my
bedroom, but they always got loose, and I got my butt spanked...but ever since then, snakes have just been so fascinating to me. I love their
simplicity, their grace, their strength. I understand why people are freaked out by them though, cause I have a huge irrational fear of spiders, and
technically, snakes pose more of a threat than spiders do, as far as I know.
I was familiar with most of them in the OP, but these two:
Iridescent Shieldtail (Melanophidium bilineatum) - Western ghats, India - Unknown
Micrurus lemniscatus - rainforests of Amazon and Mexico - Lethal
I clicked on the source but it seems these guys don't really have too much info on them. I think I'm going to try researching them a bit more.
Thanks for sharing all the amazing pics and info!
