Did you know that snakes' eyes are always open? Always.
For sleeping, the retina can be closed or the face buried among the folds of the body.
Besides the sizzling HISSS sound, which is also a namesake for my blog, and contributes to my alias with the sss prefix, what appeals [very obviously] to me is snake skin.
"Just before shedding, the skin becomes dull and dry looking and the eyes become cloudy or blue-colored. The inner surface of the old skin liquefies. This causes the old skin to separate from the new skin beneath it. After a few days, the eyes clear and the snake "crawls" out of its old skin." Wiki.
