Artist's Description

Up-close view of the scales covering a water snake….scales protect the body of the snake, aid it in locomotion, allow moisture to be retained within, alter the surface characteristics such as roughness to aid in camouflage, and in some cases even aid in prey capture. The simple or complex coloration patterns (which help in camouflage and anti-predator display) are a property of the underlying skin, but the folded nature of scaled skin allows bright skin to be concealed between scales then revealed in order to startle predators.

Please help educate children and the general public on how beautiful and beneficial snakes are to our life-support system…thank you :-)
