Snakes are horrible, disgusting, ugly and vile looking creatures. I'm glad for anyone to hunt them and kill them. Hopefully they will become extinct too. They do nothing. What do they do? NOTHING! They eat and that's it, nothing more. The damn greedy things can extend their mouthes to eat bigger things.

While snakes are disgusting, they certainly aren't the most disgusting, they keep down the population of the worst creature to ever roam the Earth...

"The Common Egg-eater (Dasypeltis scabra) eats only birds' eggs." [1]

Plus, the snake is the main source of food for the honey badger [2]. If we were to make the snake extinct, the honey badger would starve! No badger=No will to live.

A lot of countries don't have honey badgers, so that won't matter. Most people I've met hate snakes, and will always try to either shoo them away or even throw it if possible. Snakes are nothing to a lot of people, and should become extinct.

"A lot of countries don't have honey badgers, so [their extinction] won't matter."

Many countries have snakes, so, by your logic, their extinction will matter.

"Most people I've met hate snakes, and will always try to either shoo them away or even throw it if possible. Snakes are nothing to a lot of people, and should become extinct."

Most people I know hate tomatoes, that is not a valid reason to ban or eliminate them from existence.

snakes are not disgusting. I personally think they are really interesting creatures. besides that, they eat mice and smaller snakes eat roaches, Both of which, CARRY THE PLAUGE. Besides that, snake venom can be used to cure desieses. Some scientists are reaseraching to find if some snake venoms can CURE CANCER.

Snakes can do harm but I agree with con they decrease the population of stupid little rodents that like to roam in our house. Also they only attack when cornered. Humans attack snakes first and kill them for nothing which makes humans doing more harm.

Humans do much more harm to the planet than snakes. I assume that Pro simply started this debate because he/she does not like snakes.
