Snakes... eek!

I remember reading somewhere that human nightmares about snakes may be hardwired from our earlier evolutionary days avoiding lethally venomous bites. I find snakes really cool and admirable... I seek them out when I am hiking– even rattlesnakes– at a respectful distance. But I do have snaky nightmares, which are genuinely scary. Still, they are most extraordinary creatures. The sidewinder is one of nature's exquisite dancers. Watching the ugly, ungainly robot try to emulate the motion can only increase one's admiration...
