Snakes get a bad rep. That’s how I think: ‘Believe?’ Not sure.
They slither around in the grass to eat. And to mate.
Some are filled with venom. Do they know they are vilified?? Could that be the reason they have the power to kill?
I met a Snake once…I ran down the road in terror.
And then, I met one 3 years ago – as an adult – named ‘Rory’. God, he was gorgeous, and sweet looking too. But, I was scared. His Dad was in control though, and I tentatively stroked him.
But I do wonder…Are they no different? We protect ourselves. Mammals protect themselves. Would You go near a lion? I personally would like to stroke one…If I could!
And let’s not forget what we are taught about Snakes: Truthfully, Are They Evil?? Or is it a certain someone that’s portrayed as one?
I’m on the fence 🙂
