I’ve started a subcategory of my Signs and Sayings gallery entitled “Be Ye Wise as Serpents” which is a phrase attributed to Jesus (Matt. 10:16) in the King James version of the Christian Bible. I agree wholeheartedly that observing the true nature of snakes reveals much we can learn from them. First, I must admit that this is not an original idea. I was inspired by a T-shirt someone gave me, and then transposed these snake witticisms in my own words on my own art - featuring the awesome serpents of the desert southwest (with the exception of the anaconda from Out of Africa). This gorgeous mojave rattlesnake (Crotalus scutulatus) was the first rattlesnake I ever rescued from my dogs and then release backed into the wild. This snake stars in what’s become one of my most popular videos on YouTube: https://youtu.be/3S7VMx0nOqo. I don’t know if it had shed recently or not - it looked so smooth and glistened with preternatural beauty all the same!
