Cool Facts About Snakes

Did you know that snakes have been around since dinosaurs roamed the Earth and that today there are more than 3,000 snake species?! Crazy, right?

Snakes are fascinating animals, but sometimes hunters hurt them and use their skins for exotic clothing and accessories. Snakes aren’t ours to wear!
