A photo appeared in Croatia on social media of a snake swimming in the sea, trying to climb a boat between the islands Kakan and Velo Borovnik.
Andrej Simcic, who studies reptiles in the territory of Croatia, said that this is a Four-lined snake (Elaphe quatuorlineata), the longest European snake, which can grow up to 2.5 meters, but it is not venomous, reports the Croatian portal Morski.
- All snakes swim, and this one in the photo is not rare. It is possible that it was on the tree above the sea when it fell, and wanting to climb the boat is natural because she wants to be on the land - said Simcic.
