The Chinese New Year, often referred to as the “Lunar New Year”, will mark the year of the snake on February 10.
Though these creatures may not look elegant or endearing, they remain as an irreplaceable member of our ecosystem. Snakes tend to evoke instant dislike and often fear, because of inhabiting notions on their ferociousness and strength. But these are all due to the incapability to understand what they can and are doing for us.
Hopefully, the year of snake will neutralise some of our fear for these slowly endangering reptiles, fear that arises from a lack of understanding.—Photos by Agencies
