A new snake

ON Facebook recently, I introduced a friend of mine, Albee. He’s 21, a captive bred, 18-foot long albino reticulated python.

He has been under my care for many years now, dating back to the time I was still single. He still lives with us at home in Manila.

I was reminded of Albee when I came across news recently that a new snake species of green pit viper snake has been discovered in India.

The new snake is called Salazar Slytherin as inspired by a character in JK Rowling’s “Harry Potter” series.

It will be commonly known as Salazar’s pit viper.

According to India Today, the new snake was discovered in the forests of Arunachal Pradesh.

DID YOU KNOW? – That a snake smells its environment by using its forked tongue?

ETO PA: The ball python, one of the most famous among reptiles, rolls itself into a ball for defense. It can go fasting for a whole year.

The black-eyed leucistic ball python don’t live in jungles be­cause they lose their power of camouflage there.

TRIVIA PA MORE (Various Sources): Snakes are known for being wise. In the Chinese calendar, people born under the year of the Snake are considered intelligent and full of wisdom.

In some cultures, a peacock represents the symbol of im­mortality.
