My Soul-Sister Rattlesnake
My friend who lives in Arizona sent me a message that there is hot in a desert now. I began to type an answer, but then happened something strange...I was in the desert...
There was hot, even was early morning. Air was full with colourful vibrations. I was just alone poor dressed girl in the middle of the desert, covered with dry grass, some great cactus and warm rocks. I sat on a little rock and watched sunrise. Something gentle touched my foot. I turned my eyes down and saw a rattlesnake who slowly crossed my feet...
I stood very calm. If you live in a so dangerous pace as this desert, you must be very calm. Any quick moving, unexpected for all those venomous creatures around you, could be your last moving. I often was in situations when some snakes moved next to me. I just stood calm and waited when they gone their way.
This situation was different. The rattlesnake stood on my feet, turned her head up and looked straight in my eyes. I felt light headaches. Probably she wanted to tell me something, but I couldn't imagine, what...I scared to be killed. I looked on her more carefully and noticed that her waist was stout and shaking. Oh, no! She was pregnant and was ready to give birth of a bunch of little venomous babies between my feet!
I was in horror, but life in the desert don't forgive mistakes, made by emotions, so I began to think - here something is not right... The rattlesnake put her head on the earth and turned her stomach up...oh, yes, there I saw a half of little danger without any moving... It was dead and clever mum came to me for a help.
I breathed in and slowly pulled slender dead body out. It was enough. The rattlesnake made one strong convulsive movement and all dead portion came out between my feet. I sat calm. My headaches turned stronger. She looked back on this dead mess, opened a mouth and slowly swallowed her infelicitous next generation. After that she turned her head up, looked in my eyes, my headaches disappeared and I clearly heard: "Thank You."
I was happy, I felt her as my soul-sister. I hold her on my hands and we went through the desert...
I sent my insignificant answer to my friend. I was in doubt what I saw in my vision. How I remembered, snakes lied eggs... so I opened google and read all info about rattlesnakes.
My vision vas true. Rattlesnakes are viviparous and, what a surprise, a hungry rattlesnake can eat little ones...
