蛇真的吃土!

创世记三章十四节,我们读到:「耶和华上帝对蛇说 … … 你必用肚子行走,终身吃土。」因为蛇似乎并不是吃土的,所以依据各人偏好的见解,这段经文不是被当作隐喻来解释(这看来也合理),就是被认为是圣经有错误的例子。

弥迦书七章十七节,我们也读到:「(列国)必舔土如蛇。

又再一次,我们面临到一个情况:当愈来愈多的信息出现时,圣经所说的不只是正确而已,而是连小细节都精确无误。蛇确实是会特意地、有目的地吃土、舔土。

在蛇口腔的顶部有一个器官,被称作「雅克布森器官」(“Jacobson’s organ”)这是蛇除了鼻子以外的另一个嗅觉器官。蛇用牠那分叉、快速伸吐的舌头拾取少许土的样本在舌末端分叉的部位上,然后再把它们送进口腔上方这两个对称的嗅觉器官里。蛇一旦用这种方法「嗅」出它们的味道,其舌头就必须被清洁后,才能立刻再进行重复的步骤。

所以,蛇真的会舔土也会吃土!
