蛇真的吃土!

創世記三章十四節,我們讀到:「耶和華上帝對蛇說 … … 你必用肚子行走,終身吃土。」因為蛇似乎並不是吃土的,所以依據各人偏好的見解,這段經文不是被當作隱喻來解釋(這看來也合理),就是被認為是聖經有錯誤的例子。

彌迦書七章十七節,我們也讀到:「(列國)必舔土如蛇。

又再一次,我們面臨到一個情況:當愈來愈多的資訊出現時,聖經所說的不只是正確而已,而是連小細節都精確無誤。蛇確實是會特意地、有目的地吃土、舔土。

在蛇口腔的頂部有一個器官,被稱作「雅克布森器官」(“Jacobson’s organ”)這是蛇除了鼻子以外的另一個嗅覺器官。蛇用牠那分叉、快速伸吐的舌頭拾取少許土的樣本在舌末端分叉的部位上,然後再把它們送進口腔上方這兩個對稱的嗅覺器官裡。蛇一旦用這種方法「嗅」出它們的味道,其舌頭就必須被清潔後,才能立刻再進行重複的步驟。

所以,蛇真的會舔土也會吃土!
