PRE-ORDER ONLY - DELIVERY ETA: MID NOV
Snakes come in varied colours and sizes. They are usually patterned to blend in with their natural⠀environment, but seasonally shed their skin to start anew. The shedding process serves many⠀purposes: to remove parasites that may have attached to the old skin, and to allow for growth. Skin⠀shedding is required for growth, as their skin doesn’t stretch or expand; instead, the snake will grow⠀a whole new bigger skin underneath the old layer which it sheds as it grows.
Without snakes, our ecosystem would suffer a great imbalance and humans would endure a world⠀filled with many more rodents and pests. Although snakes usually target small mammals and⠀insects for food, they have been known to kill and consume large mammals like deer and sheep.⠀Although they have no legs, snakes are readily mobile, fast movers, agile climbers and (surprisingly)⠀good swimmers. Snakes rely on their environment to regulate their temperature and intuitively⠀reposition themselves or cue hibernation in order to keep their temperature stable.
They use their⠀tongue to smell and they look out for prey and potential threats alike by feeling vibrations through⠀the ground.⠀The snake teaches us the need for regular cleansing and shedding of layers within ourselves, such⠀as unhelpful habits, patterns of thinking, and old beliefs. As cold-blooded reptiles, snakes also rely⠀heavily on the heat of the sun for energy and personal warmth, which shows us that in order to⠀continue to grow, we must continually seek light as a means to recharge and maintain our energy⠀
