World Snake Day

world, snake, day

Date When Celebrated : July 16 th

World Snake Day is today.

Snakes have been around since the Garden of Eden. So, it only fitting, that the world has a special day to celebrate snakes.

 The Bible tells us that in the garden of Eden, Satan appeared to Eve in the form of a snake. That connection to Satan, gave snakes a bad reputation since the beginning of time. Perhaps that's why so many people are afraid of snakes.

Did You Know? Earthworms were once believed to be a species of snakes. Gardeners killed every one they found, unaware of the beneficial effect of earthworms in gardens.

A little Snaky Trivia:

  • There are over 3400 species of snakes.
  • Snakes are on every continent, except Antarctica.
  • Snakes eat insects, rodents and frogs. Large snakes can even eat small animals like small deer, pigs, monkeys, and small dogs.
  • Snakes swallow their food whole.
  • The longest snakes are a species of python, which can reach 30 feet in length.
  • The heaviest snake, an Anaconda ,weighed 550 pounds.
  • The smallest snake is just 4 inches long.
  • Snakes shed their skin 3-6 times per year.


Origin of World Snake Day:

Based on this historical event, we believe that Adam and Eve created World Snake Day!
