World Snake Day is celebrated on July 16, 2017. Unfortunately many people do not like snake and have bad associations about them. Snakes are said to be conniving and - there even is an own expression - snaky. But they are beautiful and to some extend endangered animals. World Snake Day recommends to get rid of that prejudices. Animals are never mean or ugly - they all have their place in the world's ecosystem.
People often do not like and fear what they do not know. Therefore World Snake Day should be celebrated by learning about snakes - how they look, where they live, what they do, which ones are dangerous and so on. Zoos or Snake Farms are good places for that. Another way is to draw or tinker colorful snakes and spread some good reputations for them in your hometown.
