I dont know. But MLBcelebrity is right- they can kill you! One time @ rain forest cafe there was a ruber snake their and my 9 year old brother put it on my shoulder and i freaked out and screamed so LOUD! i ran out of the cafe, i was so scared. Everyone laughed at me an once i found out it was a fake snake i laughed too. Lol
Because God cursed them after the serpent deceived Eve, putting enmity between "his offspring and yours. He will strike your heel, and you will crush his head." They are a species humankind will always hate because of the event that occurred between the first snake and the first woman.
People hate what they do not know and understand. In America 60,000 people die each year in car crashes and only 0-3 people die from venomous snakes, yet people aren't scared of cars so why are you scared of snakes? It's all about perception.
