Really Spectacular & Terrifying Snake Attacks All On One Compilation Video
Snakes…I can’t stand them, they’re mindless, soulless, killers who only live to eat and procreate. And before you say is- NO I’m not afraid of them and am not given to fits of Ophidiophobia. I just can’t wrap my head around the fact that some folks like to keep them as “pets”…but that’s just me. And if you are one of those people that can love these slimy, creepy crawling things…well more power to you!!
Fear of snakes is one of the most common phobias, yet many people have never seen a snake in person. So how is this fear generated?
New research suggests humans have evolved an innate tendency to sense snakes — and spiders, too — and to learn to fear them.
Psychologists found that both adults and children could detect images of snakes among a variety of non-threatening objects more quickly than they could pinpoint frogs, flowers or caterpillars. The researchers think this ability helped humans survive in the wild.
That’s kind of strange, isn’t it?
Previously, anthropologists have suggested the need to notice snakes in the wild may have led early primates to develop better vision and larger brains.
I guess the one thing that really bothers me about people who do keep snakes as pets, is that eventually the animal gets too big and folks release them into the wild and it can screw-up an entire ecosystem. Don’t believe me? Just ask the folks down in Florida how they feel about that.
But, if you are one of those people that don’t mind sitting at home with an eight foot yellow boa constrictor cuddling with you on the couch while you watch television, then the video below is probably right up your alley.
