First, snakes have no ears. Even the eyesight of this animal is not sharp. Those who play veena or sapure, while playing the veena, keep waving the veena in front of the snake's face. The snake also shakes its head when it sees the snake in front of its eyes, thinking that an enemy is in front of it.

Snakes hear with their tongues

Snakes like to drink milk

Cold blooded animals are snakes, mammals and not carnivores. As a result, it is very difficult for snakes to eat milk and digest it. Milk can be said to be very harmful for snakes. Even some species of snakes can die from milk. The snakes that are seen drinking milk, they are mainly snakes of the Sapuridae. The Sapurs generally do not allow the snakes to drink water for about a month before Nagapanchami and are kept in captivity. Then these snakes are milked in front of the mouth. Snakes forcefully consume that milk.

Since ages, the treatment of snake bites is completely unscientific.
