Sooo, They’re kind of awesome. And hardcore. I respect that. They’re just a exothermic species livin’ in a.. um cold world not super friendly towards exotherms.

How do they stay warm? They like to relax, as everyone does, in some mountain hotsprings! where they eat fish and amphibians and such. 

Chillin (or not) in a nice hotsping for life. Pretty awesome. 

Also they are cool looking. Which is important.


It’s bad how few harmless snakes I know compared to the number of venomous ones. But I an genuinely interest in the science of venom. I’d love to study it if I weren’t so terrible at chemistry.

I don’t like pit vipers much; they look, ironically enough too primitive for my aesthitics, but i do like lots of regular vipers, buut there are some awesome colubridae snakes too. so one of those is my fav family.
