What is the fragrance snake? Ranking the world’s top 10 amazing snakes.
There are many strange creatures in this world, and the fragrance snake is one of them. It is said that the fragrance snake can emit a magical fragrance all over its body, and can also twist its body into a beautiful pattern. With strong vitality, it is deeply loved in Guyana. However, the fragrance snake is not the only one. There are many other types of snakes in the world that look stunning. Some snake patterns look more beautiful than the fragrance snake. Let’s take a look together.
- Emerald tree boa
Most species of boa have bright colors, such as the non-venomous Corallus caninus found in the tropical rainforests of South America. This snake usually grows to about 6 feet or 1.8 meters long when mature. They have highly developed fangs, which may be larger than those of any other non-venomous snake.
- California red-sided garter snake
They are the most colorful snakes in North America, more vibrant than SFG. Their habitat, Reyes Pond, has now dried up and been filled with saltwater, killing all the red-sided garter snakes that lived there.
- Blind snake
A newly discovered snake family, blind snakes live on Madagascar Island. Blind snakes grow to about one foot (30 cm) long and behave like worms. Unlike the worm virus, the backbone of a blind snake is tiny.
- White Burmese python
Burmese pythons are relatively common and generally grow into huge snakes. This snake is cautious when feeding. Although Burmese pythons are generally gentle, they have incredible power, especially when they are very hungry and accidents can easily occur. Sadly, more and more Burmese pythons are being abandoned.
- Bright pink snake
This snake grows to about 16 inches (40 cm) long and feeds on small mice and lizards. There is a bright pink mark behind it, making it one of Madagascar’s most colorful snakes.
- White-spotted snake
This snake is the king snake of Mexico. It is about 110 cm long and has a red ring. It is named after Edward Nelson. Its natural habitat includes semi-arid coastal scrub and tropical deciduous forests, feeding on birds, rodents, lizards and amphibians.
- Blue coral snake
A member of the cobra family, blue coral snakes are found in tropical rainforests in Southeast Asia. Their venom glands extend throughout their bodies, even near the tail of some species. They are widely distributed in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Borneo, but are not often seen as they generally move at night.
- Fragrant Snake:
In the village of Bonkana in Guyana, there is a peculiar snake that emits a fragrant odor from its body, which has insect-repellent and mosquito-repellent properties. What’s more interesting is that the fragrant snake can coil its body into a beautiful “pattern” that locals use as a unique design element for creating beautiful snake window grilles by sprinkling glue on the snake’s body to fix its shape.
Because of this unique feature, local women use the fragrant snake to make earrings. After catching the snake, they use glue to coil its body into a ring and wear it on their ears. The fragrant snake has a strong vitality, and when it is caught, it remains motionless, and its body starts to shrink from the tail, and the fragrance gradually fades. After a few days, the fragrance disappears completely. Local women will abandon it and catch other fragrant snakes. At this point, the fragrant snake is already dying. As long as they are released from captivity, they will try to absorb water and food and gradually recover. Therefore, a fragrant snake can be caught many times throughout its life.
- Leaf-Nosed Snake:
Also known as the leaf-nosed snake, it is adapted to a arboreal lifestyle and mainly feeds on lizards. Its most interesting feature is its bizarre “horn” or projection on its nose and mouth. It is one of the weirdest reptiles in the world.
- Horned Viper:
It is a nocturnal venomous snake that inhabits the sand dunes of the Negev Desert in northwest Israel.
