小编摘要:蛇,一种危险的动物,不过这10种色彩艳丽的蛇绝对会让你眼前一亮!

 NO.1  Emerald Tree Boa      绿玉树蟒(蚺科, 亚马孙树蚺)

Most species of boas are colorful like the Corallus caninus, a non-venomous snake found in the rainforests of South America. Adults grow to about 6 feet or 1.8 m in length. They have highly developed front teeth that are likely proportionately larger than those of any other non-venomous snake.

NO.2  Cobra's Hood    眼镜蛇

The spectacled cobra, named for the eyeglass design on its flared hood (seen here), shares with the Russell's viper the infamy of causing more human deaths than any other snakes. Both are highly venomous and are found in the midst of vast populations of people in Southeast Asia. The spectacled cobra eats rats, poultry, and frogs and is known to enter houses when hunting.

NO.3  Blind Snake     盲蛇,   蠕蛇

 

The genes of a newfound snake family suggest blind snakes lived on the island of Madagascar since, well, before it was an island.

The discovery is helping to decode how these rarely seen—and barely seeing, though not completely blind—snakes came to colonize much of the planet.

Growing to about a foot (30 centimeters) long, blind snakes act a lot like worms, burrowing under the surface of every continent except Antarctica. Unlike worms, though, blind snakes have backbones and tiny scales.

NO.4  Albino Burmese Pythons    白化缅甸

The snake pictured above is an albino Burmese python. Burmese pythons are readily available but grow up to be huge snakes. This is one of the snakes that need a healthy dose of caution, so think twice (or more) before getting one as a pet. Though Burmese pythons are generally quite docile, they are incredibly strong, and it just takes a single mistake in handling them (especially at feeding time when they are hungry) to have disastrous results. Sadly, increasing numbers of Burmese pythons are being dumped by owners who can't handle them anymore (in fact, they appear to have become quite established in the Florida Everglades, and are preying on native species).

NO.5  Bright Pink Snake     粉紅色斑點蛇

The snake Liophidium pattoni grows to about 16 inches (40 centimeters) and preys on small rodents and lizards. ‘The bright pink markings on its back make it one of the most colorful snakes in all of Madagascar. It's very unusual,' Ratsifandrihamanana said. L. pattoni was first reported in 2010 in Masoala National Park in northeastern Madagascar.
