Snake life, my perspective

.
Snakes are cold-blooded animals. These reptiles do not control their temperature, so it depends on the environment in which they are. Within this description of snakes, we usually include snakes, vipers, rattlesnakes, boas, cobras, mambas, a whole list of 2600 poisonous and non-poisonous species.

They are legless animals, which means that they do not have legs, so that in order to move they crawl on the ground with singular movements. We will talk about this and more on our website today, so if you are interested in the world of snakes, continue with us.

They have a cylindrical and elongated body covered by a scaly skin. His jaw is another of his distinguishing characteristics. They can open wide thanks to the articulation of the lower jaw is made up of muscles.

Their sense of hearing is not very developed, as they do not have an external ear. Another peculiarity is its forked tongue, which allows it to direct the particles in the environment to its Jacobson organ in order to perceive the smells.

There are a variety of snakes both terrestrial and aquatic. They live in all parts of the world, except polar areas, because they are heterothermal. These carnivorous animals shed their skin periodically during their growth and, with the exception of snakes, boas and rattlesnakes, have a method of oviparous reproduction.

Snakes feed in correspondence with their size, because they do not chew their food. This means that smaller specimens consume smaller prey such as small rodents and insects, while larger snakes consume animals such as crocodiles, lizards, deer, monkeys or cattle.

In the choice of prey, other factors such as habitat (water snakes tend to feed on fish), body temperature, movement of the prey or its smell also influence it. Although there are species with a more specialized diet, in general, they feed on any live animal and in captivity they can consume animals already dead but fresh and thawed.

As pets, snakes can be rewarding, but lack the intelligence of mammals or birds, and never come when they are called or will do tasks for their owner as they go to look for their shoes.

Snakes experience the world in a way so different from human beings, that biologists are not even sure how to study their intelligence. However, a breeder or owner of a pet snake can change the behavior of your animal in several ways, effectively teaching you how to act or react to various stimuli.
