There's something very mysterious about snakes. Throwbacks to a time when giant lizards ruled the world, snakes are almost otherworldly. People fear them on a primal level, the way they fear spiders or sharks or giant cats. Even the smallest snake can be intimidating to some people.
But that's just some people. To others, snakes represent royalty and wisdom. Egyptian pharaohs sometimes had snakes included in their headdresses. And don't forget the Staff of Asclepius, a staff with a snake encircling it, that has long been used in the healthcare and medical fields. Why does a snake wrapped around a staff symbolize healing? Well, in the past snakes were used in healing rituals, and word is they were allowed to slither freely on the floors of buildings housing the sick in Ancient Greece.
