Many gardeners think that Ukraine is not inhabited by poisonous snakes. Or, if they are, then is that somewhere in the dense forests of the Carpathians. However, this is not the case. Throughout the country there are tens of species snakes, some of which are deadly. Sometimes these snakes live in gardens, so this meeting, the gardener should be prepared.
Brand on the whole territory of Ukraine live snakes. The population we really are insignificant, and the majority of all reptiles – snakes are harmless. However, there are sometimes very dangerous individuals, some of which can settle in your garden or village.
Let’s first understand what a snake can crawl on your site, and what are they actually dangerous? In our latitudes, are common only a few species of snakes – grass snakes, Copperhead, snakes and vipers. And if the first three types do not represent a health hazard per se, the Viper can be a real threat to life. Of course, very rare, and rarely attack people.
However, the Viper bite poisoning acts on the internal organs, blood, respiratory system and other vital systems.
To distinguish the Viper from other non-poisonous snakes found in our area, the inexperienced person would be very difficult. At first glance, Continue reading
It would seem, at the dawn of the new Millennium, it is difficult to find new species of animals, but yet scientists continue to surprise us. Research is successful quite often: for example, in South East Asia were found unique flying snakes. but in Indonesia – the new Gecko. And again found unknown fauna.
Long-term field and laboratory work by a group of zoologists led by Omar Torres-Carvajal (Museum of Zoology, Pontifical Catholic University of Ecuador) led to the discovery in the forests in northwestern Ecuador a new species remnevidnyh thick-headed serpent, which was named Imantodes chocoensis.
To allocate a new view that allowed features of the structure of the head. Later DNA analysis confirmed the hypothesis and allowed us to determine the closest relatives of snakes. They were members of the species that live in the Amazon basin on the other side of the Andes. “One possible explanation for the differences Imantodes chocoensis and its closest relative is that the uplift of the Andes have divided the original population into two parts, each of which has evolved into a separate species,” said Dr Torres-Carvajal.
Remnevidnyh thick-headed snakes live in Mexico and Argentina and are different from other snakes of the New World with a very thin body, disproportionately slender neck, big eyes, and a dumb head. Continue reading

Today I saw dozens of these creatures, as well as too. The question is it poisonous? Useful or snake? Don really seems to say, but the Viper is quite difficult to distinguish, maybe there are zoologists who will be able to tell the difference?
Like the snakes.
“However, the expert will always distinguish the snake from the Viper on the General appearance. It is a slender snake with a long tail, reaching lengths of up to a meter or more. Living in the Rostov area, steppe Viper is a small snake. Usually adults do not exceed 30-35 cm. The body of the Viper is more awkward than the snake. Well expressed in a short thin tail.
