Interesting! I've hearing about countries that doesn't have snakes but I never knew New Zealand is one of those countries. Unfortunately, me living in a country of such would not in anyway be determined by the absence of snake. If it were to be before, I would have found such a country a perfect place to stay, but presently, there is no single animal I am scared of.
The truth is, previously I used to be very scared of snakes specifically when I was younger. Back then, by mere seeing a snake in documentary used to get me intrepidated. This fear was actually created from the perception I have about snake, that it was the animal that made the first man and woman on earth to rebel against God, hence it was through it sin entered the world. This perception, coupled with its creepy nature was why I was very scared of snake.
Thankfully, I am liberated from such fear because I now have the knowledge that all the animals on earth are under my dominion. For this very reason, I wouldn't mind if there is countless number of dangerous animals including snakes in any part of the world, I would still be an inhabitant of that country.
