1. A snake is a reptile. What are reptiles?
A reptile is a cold-blooded animal with a skeleton inside its body
and dry scales or hard plates on its skin. Most reptiles lay
eggs with soft, leathery shells. Some kinds of reptiles live
in water, but use their noses to breathe air into their lungs.
Lizards, turtles, snakes, and crocodiles are kinds of
reptiles. Most reptiles have short legs, but snakes creep on
the ground without legs.
2. A snake
is a long, narrow reptile that has scales but no legs. Some
snakes catch food by paralyzing their prey with poison.
Constrictor snakes squeeze their prey to death. Other snakes
and most lizards sneak into nests to eat eggs, or camouflage
themselves to they can catch passing insects or other small animals.
