Snake massage

Lookout, Thailand! Israel has just leapt ahead in the international competition to snag tourists seeking massages!

Israel's contribution to the world of massage tourism is a spa in northern Israel called "Ada Barak's Carnivorous Plant Farm."

Among the shadows of Israel's famous orange groves, Ada Barak has long opened her home to curious travelers to see her collection of carnivorous plants and other natural oddities. When snakes became part of the exhibition, she noticed the effect they had on visitors - and the snake massage was born. (Rats balanced on one's feet during the massage are apparently optional.)

Ahh...just another example of humans exploiting wildlife for personal gain. If this really catches on, I wonder how long it will take before they decide to start genetically manipulating, (or even more cruelly just taping their mouths shut) the poor creatures so they won't "accidentally" bite someone and prove to be a liability. I sure wish people would stop their athropocentric practices. I just keep telling myself "It's okay Mary, because of this self-destructive plight man is on, when the extinction of the Homo sapien species becomes a reality, the rest of the truly deserving species shall inherit their rightful ownership of the earth."
