I loved the way this snakes wicked eye gazed at me as I took this shot. The snake had a red spectrum heat lamp above him and it cast an evil red glow that just captivated me. LOVED IT! It had an sinister feeling muaahaahaaha.
This snake was the second Green tree python I captured from the Zoo. See the other one here here: http://zenakita.deviantart.com/art/Eye-Ssssee-U...
The name is a play on the Story about the “original Sin” where the snake tempted eve and then adam and eve fell out of favor with God.
The Temptation, Fall, and Expulsion from the Garden
The story that shows the source of human original sin. The serpent tells the woman that she will not die if she eats the fruit of the tree: “When you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” So the woman eats, and gives to the man who also eats. “Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves aprons.” The man and woman hide themselves from God, the man blaming the woman for giving him the fruit, and the woman blaming the serpent. God curses the serpent, “upon your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life;”
God expels the couple from Eden, for this original sin. "Quote from WIKI: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eve_(Bible)
