Snakes are carnivorous reptiles in the suborder Serpentes.  They have long, legless, narrow bodies and mobile jaws that allow them to swallow prey larger than their heads.  They can be found on every continent except Antarctica.  In fact, there are almost 3 thousand species of snake!

Snake species vary in size, ranging from only several inches in length to long pythons over 30 feet!  There are both venomous and non-venomous snakes capable of killing or injurying their victims.  Non-venomous snakes usually swallow their prey alive or kill by constriction.


  Did you know....

that some snakes fake being dead when they are threatened?  The Hognose, Grass snake and Spitting Cobra will flop onto their backs, open their mouths and let their tongues hang out.  Would a predator want to eat a dead snake?  These snakes sure hope not!

Reptiles !

In the Book "The lectures of Linnaeus concerning the Animal Kingdom", published about 100 years ago, Carl Linnaeus wrote in the beginning of his Chapter on Amphibia that animals in this Chapter are "the ugliest, most cruel and most poisoning".  He expressed that he was happy that our Creator put rather few of these animals into this class.  If there had been more, they would have hurt the other species.

Carl Linnaeus (1701-1778) was a Swedish botanist, physician and zoologist.  He is known as the father of taxonomy and the one who laid the foundations for our current biological naming scheme.
