Snakes


  • Snakes are scaly reptiles with long, skinny bodies and no arms or legs.
  • There are many different kinds of snakes, but they all have things in common.
  • All snakes are carnivores, or meat eaters. Depending on the size and kind of snake,and where they live, snakes enjoy rats, birds, eggs, chipmunks, other snakes,deer, and pigs, swallowing them whole.
  • Snakes don't have the right kind of teeth to chew like you do,but they can open their mouth much wider than you can, and they have teeth that point backwards,holding prey in so their dinner can't make a run for it.
