    9 Shocking myths about snakes everyone believes to be true

There is a belief in our society that if a person kills a snake, his/her picture is stored in his eyes, which is recognized by another snake who follows the snake killer till it bites him and takes revenge.

 

However, from the scientific point of view, this belief is nothing but a superstition because snakes are beings with very tiny brain, which is not even that developed to store images and take revenge.

 

According to science, when a snake dies, its body ejects a peculiar smell that attracts all other snakes of its tribe and they all come near the dying snake. People on the other hand misunderstand it to be other snakes coming to take revenge.
