Snakes give some people instant goosebumps, but provide a slithery fascination for others. This screensaver is decidedly for the latter group, offering a slide show of nearly three dozen images of various snakes. The image quality is generally good, and we like the variety of transition effects. The software allows users to set how often images are changed, switch their order, and select transition effects. Images can be displayed in black and white, or used as wallpaper on the computer's desktop. For those who see beauty in a snake's coils, this may well be worth a try.

If you have a warm spot for cold-blooded creatures, then you might appreciate the Snakes Screensaver. It puts on a slide show of 32 high-quality photos of various types of snakes, many of them close-up shots. The versatile screen-saver engine lets you set any of the pictures as your wallpaper, plus provides options for transition effects, sizing, and image delay. A nice music background.
