Benefits of Snakes
|Most often snakes are thought of as ugly, slimy and dangerous animals, but believe it or not the purpose of snakes are not just to scare us but also to help us in many ways. Like:
Snakes help control the smaller members of the animal kingdom becoming over populated.
Farmers save a least seventy - five dollars a year because of snakes protecting their farm products from destructive rodents.
The Most Valued Benefit
Snake Vemon is highly valued. The Snake venom is extracted through a series of steps. Then the venom is injected into horses, which have to be watched closely for many months. As the horses become immune to the snake venom, blood will be collected, taken to a medical ladoratory and processed into snakebite serum. The blood is then distributed to hospitals and doctors. If someone is bitten by a poisomous snake the horse serum, or antivenin, can be injected to make the snake venom in the body become ineffective.
There may not be very many benefits to snakes, but the few that we have are life saving.
