I have a lot of questions about snakes, they are pretty interesting animals that can be found all over the world.
They vary in size and length from as small as 1 foot to up to 12 feet long!
Most of these snakes live in areas where they have access to water such as rivers or lakes.
Snakes also need trees for shelter and food sources like birds or mice. You may think that snakes just slither around on the ground but they actually climb trees too.
These are some of the best questions about snakes

Questions and Answers about Snakes
These are some common questions that people have about snakes and their respective answers.
How long Can Snakes Get?
The longest snake ever found was a reticulated python from Southeast Asia, which measured approximately 32 feet in length.
This record-breaking serpent was discovered during the 1930s. Chances to find one nowadays are very slim
Do Snakes Sleep?
It is difficult to tell if snakes are sleeping because they have no eyelids. So, when you look at them, their eyes are always open and alert.
There has been little research on the subject of snake sleep as there is not a clear definition for what it means to be asleep in reptiles (versus mammals).
They do show behavioral changes that seem like “sleep” but we can’t pinpoint how much time these creatures spend unconscious per day due to lack of data available.
Can Snakes Swim?
A snake’s ability to swim and climb is different depending on species. Some even have the unique skill of flying by spreading their bodies out!
What are Some of the Most Poisonous Snakes
The deadliest snake in the water is a sea snake, which belongs to the cobra family. The most lethal land-dwelling species of this reptile are called inland taipans and reside mainly outback Australia.
How do Snakes Reproduce?
Some species of snakes produce their young in eggs and others give birth to live young.
Egg-laying snakes lay white, elongated eggs with a dry skin-like shell. Snakes lay them on leaf litter or rotting logs where they incubate for up to three months before hatching.
Do Snakes have Bones?
It may be tempting to think that snakes have no bones, but they do. They even have more than we humans!
Snakes belong to the vertebrates, along with all other reptiles and amphibians, mammals, birds, and fish. All these animals have an inner skeleton.
