About This Quiz

Did you know that in some Aboriginal Australian stories, the entire universe was created by a Rainbow Snake?  It's said that the snake's movements created the hills and mountains and rivers.  It brought life to the lifeless land and made everything possible.  The story may change from place to place, but the general theme is that the serpent was an all-powerful force of Creation.  So yes, snakes are a big deal.

If you find your thoughts drifting to our scaly friends more often than not, have no fear.  You're just part of a long, proud history of the snake-obsessed.  The question isn't if you're snaked-obsessed though, it's how obsessed are you?  Do you find yourself hissing when you're frustrated? How about when you're just hungry?  Can you explain the differences between a reticulated python and a ball python to someone who doesn't know?  Would you handle a venomous snake if the need arose? Do you know what to do with a constrictor that refuses to eat?  Do you watch Netflix with a snake over yourself?  It's time to gauge that obsession of yours.  Take the quiz and sssssssee!
