Essential Data about Snakes

  • Breed Name: Snakes
  • Scientific Name: Serpentes
  • Kingdom: Animalia
  • Class: Reptilia
  • Order: Scaled reptiles
  • Lifespan: Acrochordus arafurae: 9 years
  • Diet: Snakes are carnivorous reptiles. Large snakes eat large animals. Small ones eat small ones. The smallest snakes eat insects and other invertebrates
  • Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles. Like all other squamates, snakes are ectothermic, amniote vertebrates covered in overlapping scales
  • Habitat: Some snakeslive in habitats on land, including forests, prairies, and deserts. Others live in water environments. Even though snakes can be found all over the world, most of the snakes live in warm tropical climates
  • Most Deadly may not be most deadliest snake. “most deadly” snake and the “most dangerous” snake are two entirely different concepts. Some of the snakes with the most toxic venom – in other words, more deadly – rarely bite people. For instance, the deadliest sea snakes are generally quite docile. The Inland Taipan, the snake with the deadliest venom, has never killed anyone on record. On the other hand, the snakes that kill the most people (most dangerous) have “mild” venoms compared to other venomous snakes
