Some people even admires the beauty of these reptiles that they prefer to keep them as pets.

There are more than 3,000 known species of snakes in the world. They practically live almost everywhere, in deserts, forests, oceans, and lakes. On every continent, there is at least one type of snake. Except in the north of the Arctic Circle and Antarctica where the ground stays frozen all year making it impossible for them to survive in such places.

Snakes are naturally shy, non-confrontational creatures who would always rather choose escape if given the choice. However, like any wild animals, they will only attack if they are startled or threatened. Left undisturbed, they will rarely attack humans – in fact, humans attack more snakes than the other way around!
