ヘビはそのほとんどが、私が近づくと逃げていきます。
When I approach, the most sanke escape.

ところが時々、アオダイショウでは「でん」と構えて動かないやつもいます。
However, there is sometimes an individual from which it doesn’t run away either in Japanese ratsnake.

アオダイショウの「大将」は、大きなヘビという意味合いもあると思うのだが、
こうした堂々とした態度も「大将」なのかもしれない。
Japanese ratsnake is called “Ao daisyo” in Japanese. “Ao” means blue or green. When I am called by one word, “Daisyo” is called “Taisyo”. “Taisyo” is a word to mean a general. “Taisyo” is named concerning a big snake, but it may be that such a dignified manner is an origin.
