Fact and Phobia of the Day

In light of my new favorite show Swamp People here is today’s fact!

 It takes about 50 hours for a snake to digest one frog.

Bleh…I hate snakes.

Phobia of the day (thanks to Wikipedia)
Ophidiophobia or ophiophobia is a particular type of specific phobia, the abnormal fear of snakes. Fear of snakes is sometimes called by a more general term, herpetophobia, fear of reptiles and/or amphibians.

Care must also be taken to differentiate people who do not like snakes or fear them for their venom or the inherent danger involved. An ophidiophobic would not only fear them when in live contact but also dreads to think about them or even see them on TV or in pictures.
