When animals aren’t so cuddly?
动物不“萌”,怎么办?

Snakes, spiders and lizards. Urbanites often react in fear and
disgust when encountering them. But these uncharismatic animals play a key role in not just the ecosystem but also in our lives. How can we overcome the irrational stigma against these perhaps less cuddly creatures and uncover their hidden beauty within?

在都市生活久了的人都对蛇、蜘蛛和蜥蜴充满恐惧和厌恶。可人们不知道的是,这些看似毫无魅力可言的动物不但对生态系统发挥着很大的作用,也在我们生活中至关重要。所以我们如何去除贴在这些看似没有很萌的动物身上不合理的烙印,并发掘它们隐藏的生命之美?
