World's Smallest Snake

World's Smallest Snake Wow !!! US Scientist has discovered the Globe's tiniest species of snake in the easternmost Caribbean island of Barbados, with full-grown adults typically stretching less than 4 inches (10 centimeters) long. This snake lives on termites and insect larvae and it is not venomous. Still Scientist are trying to find about its behavior.

It seems new and interesting species are still being discovered on Caribbean islands. Scientists say islands often host odd-sized creatures because they're usually inhabited by a less diverse set of species than continents. So island beasts and insects often grow or shrink to fill ecological roles....
