Information about snakes:

Snakes are legs-less animals of the Suborder Serpentes. They are a very successful group of animals, and inhabit many different kinds of environments both terrestrial and marine. The evolution of snakes isn’t very well known, due to the lack of many fossils because the skeletons of snakes are relatively fragile and scatter easily. There are some fossils identified at snakes from about 150 million years ago. Some snakes like boas and pythons have small vestigial hind limbs.

The skin of a snake is covered with scales. Despite popular belief they are not slimy. They must molt in order lose old and worn skin and also to shed parasites like ticks and mites. Snakes do not have eyelids, but rather are covered with clear scales. They have a very sensitive sense of smell, and use it to track their prey. They also are able to use vibrations in the ground to detect when their prey is approaching. Snakes are strictly carnivorous. Many of the snakes use different types of venom to paralyze their prey. Others, like boas, use constriction to kill their prey. Snakes do not have teeth and therefore have to swallow their prey whole. To do this they have jaws that can unhinge from each other, and therefore they can consume very large prey. After feeding, snakes might not to eat for many days or even weeks.

Arizona Ridge-Nosed Rattlesnake – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Arizona Ridge-Nosed Rattlesnake:

The Arizona Ridge-Nosed Rattlesnake is a venomous reptile native to only a few mountain ranges in Arizona, usually only found above 5000 feet, up to about 8000 in Pine forests and cooler canyons. Generally, the snake doesn't grow larger than a few ounces and longer than 24 inches. The name comes from the snake's distinctive upturned nose. The snake feeds on small lizards, mice, and invertebrates like centipedes. They are very secretive animals, usually only active at dawn and dusk, and are therefore rarely encountered by humans. As these animals are considered threatened by the state of Arizona it is illegal to collect or kill them. They are also the official reptile of the state of Arizona. Curiously, they were the last rattlesnake to be discovered and named by herpetologists in the US.

Black Mamba – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Black Mamba:

Black Mambas are highly venomous snakes belonging to the family Elapidae. It is one of four species of the genus Dendroaspis. The other three species are green and arboreal in nature. The Black Mamba is native to the savannas, rocky hills and open woodlands of sub-Saharan Africa. The fearsome reputation of Black Mamba is deserved as bites from them, if left untreated, have a mortality rate of 100 percent. (The venom of the other species of mamba are somewhat less deadly.) However, the popular belief that they will attack unprovoked and actually chase humans is not accurate, as these snakes generally will not bite unless provoked.

Black-Backed Sea Krait – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Black-Banded Sea Krait:

The Black-Banded Sea Krait - also called the Chinese Sea Snake or erabu umi hebi - is a member of the Laticauda genus of sea snakes. It is most commonly found in warm waters of the western Pacific Ocean, usually not far from shore in the coral reefs. Which it shaped like many of the terrestrial species of snake, the tail is flatted with extended skin, spread wide like a fin and this is used to aid in swimming. It is a nocturnal snake and rarely seen during the day. It requires oxygen to breathe, so breaks the surface at least once every six hours. It is too slow to catch fish in a straight chase, so it hunts for fish hiding in the coral. The bite is highly venomous and paralyzes the prey. Females lay their eggs on land. Generally, the species is found in Fiji, southern Japan and Singapore. Their venom is ten times stronger than that of a cobra, making them extremely dangerous. But unless this snake is cornered or feels otherwise threatened by humans it will not bite.
