Mr. Nature: Flying Snakes

Jambo, everybody, Mr. Nature here. And today we’re off in search of flying snakes.

Once upon a time, people believed that Arabia bred flying snakes which would sometimes migrate to populated areas and become a deadly plague. Herodotus wrote all about it–and was pooh-poohed by later generations.

But in real life, Indonesia is home to the paradise tree snake–a snake which glides through the air from tree to tree. So maybe Herodotus wasn’t as all wet as everybody thought. (Hint: He usually turns out not to be!)

Ah! you say. But what does a flying serpent hunt?

You’re gonna love this.

Flying lizards!

God’s stuff–cooler than we ever would have thought of.
