Activity > Learning About Snakes
  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.
