Today we are celebrating the World Snake Day! With over 300 species distributed across the world, vipers are stunning and colorful snakes. Differently from other snakes, they do not usually actively hunt for their preys, but rather they adopt a sit-and-wait feeding strategy. An incredible evolutionary adaptation is their heat-sensing organ located just below the ridge connecting the eyes with the nostril. By hiding in shaded areas, some vipers can scan the surrounding environment in the Infrared, allowing to accurately visualize their warm-blooded preys. Do you think that’s all? Well, some researches pointed out that New World pit-vipers can relocate their preys after the strike thanks to specific toxins called disintegrins. Quite handy, hey? Indeed, this adaptation significantly reduces the risks of being attacked back by the preys. Unfortunately, many folk tales are mining the survival of many snake species. These animals are for sure to be respected, but also to be admired. It is thanks to modified viper toxins that now we can cure high blood pressure diseases by targeting angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors. Moreover, all snake species play a crucial role in maintaining the right balance in the trophic (food) chain by controlling top-down other organisms such as mice and rats.  Respect and admire snakes. Don't bother them, they won't bother you. Happy #WorldSnakeDay2018 !
