Why do snakes get a bad rap?

We react to snakes from a place of unfounded fear. They don’t have facial expressions and they move quickly, so they’re often seen as just cold or slimy. But snakes play a valuable role in the ecosystem. Not only do they help regulate the population of disease-carrying rodents, they also serve as prey for larger animals. It’s true that snakes get a bad rap, but it’s important to understand they have a purpose and a place in nature.
