Coiled

Coiled

I do not particularly like snakes but I do find them interesting and so that is why I took its photograph. This one is coiled up onto itself.

I do not know even what kind of snake it is. It was taken at the Phoenix Zoo in Arizona.

According to National Geographic, “There are more than 3,000 species of snakes on the planet and they’re found everywhere except in Antarctica, Iceland, Ireland, Greenland, and New Zealand. About 600 species are venomous, and only about 200—seven percent—are able to kill or significantly wound a human.”

Lion’s Feet

I love close-ups of wildlife. These are lion’s feet. They are so incredible with the foot padding and the beautiful fur around it. “The lion (Panthera leo) is a species in the family Felidae; it is a muscular, deep-chested cat with a short, rounded head, a reduced neck and round ears, and a hairy tuft at the end of its tail.”
