She’s freezing, Jake. All her functions, especially mental function, are slowing down rapidly. You will have to go out and get her. Us mammals (birds too) can stay much more active in sub-freezing temperatures, but go through a lot more energy to do it.
Is she not a mammal ? I assume her non-snake parts are. She even has some non-snake hair.
Wells, that might suggests a mesotherm. >o.oo.o< There's a few ofs those arounds now, though the term was coined to refers to the likelies thermoregulation ofs dinosaurs.
Cold lava? Most of us call that rock.
no i think that is made of volcanic ash
wheres me pickaxe? no creeper gunna blow an obsidian house.
I remember when I once did that. Zombie took away my wooden door and I got creepers everywhere. It was a big house. I left it to rot
I feel like this is a conversation I’ve had with my kids before, haha.
It does seem very accurate. ^^
The time has come to find out whether Modest is actually cold-blooded or not…
my guess is that modest as a snake will be REALLY sensitive to the cold, plus what with her moving/slithering with about half her body on the ground she has lots of contact with the freezing snow. seriously, she should considder hibernating….or maybe someone can knit her a giant tail-sock?
But can she move around with a sock over her tail?
yep. welcome to parenting.
Poor Modest, discovering snow for the first time. SHe gets to make snowmen and snow angels though!
Snow angels? Or a snow snake? Snow medusas? Hmm…
Snow wyverns? Snow quetzacoatls?
I was worried for a second she was going to go into a coma sleep like reptiles do when they get too cold, due to them being cold-blooded
Weirdest thing about this is that some people believe, exspecially where live, that larger reptilian-like creatures like the Gorgon and Lamia could actually be warm blooded. Due to their general full grown size, such a creature wouldn’t be able to sustain its body heat while having to rely on other heated objects. It’s why some scientists believe the Dinosaurs may have been warm blooded and why some D&D Dungeon Masters will play these creatures and others like the Dragon as warm blooded. /rambleramble
My theory is that she is warm blooded but is playing the act of a child who’s never encountered snow which can either result in the child freaking out and not wanting to go outside until it’s explained to them Or like what is happening above; Screwing around without a coat not knowing about the dangers of frostbite.
I guess snake girls really are cool too.
I half expected her to sing the song from Nightmare before Christmas.
Beware strong language.
Good save Jake! I was starting to get a little worried.
