How to eat a snake

Because there are so many snakes, there are also different ways to catch a prey and eat it.
All snakes have a forked tongue with which they look for prey because snakes can not hear and can not see well.
The constrictor snake strangles its prey and swallows the prey with the head first. The Venomous snake bites its prey and swallows the prey with the head first. The head goes first so that the legs of the victim not remain in stabbing the throat of the snake.
Because snakes have their trachea in the lower jaw, they can move it forward so that they can continue to breathe while swallowing large prey. This is necessary because the prey of the hose may be larger than the tube itself
Mucus in the mouth of the snake helps further sliding of the prey to the stomach. Swallowing the prey is often very slow. If snakes a good big prey ate them afterwards or sometimes six months without food.

Reproduction of the snake

Males and females snakes are very similar to each other, only females are usually slightly larger. Snakes usually lay eggs but there are snakes species that have similar baby snakes, which they call levendbarend. When snakes lay eggs, they usually do so in a warm and safe place such as under a rotting tree trunk, a pile of leaves or under a rock. The sun takes care of the heat that is needed by the eggs. A time lay hoses between the 4th and 40th eieren.De baby snakes have in the hatch an egg tooth. This is a sharp tip on the baby long snout which they can break the egg to get out. The egg tooth falls afterwards itself off again.

A snake as a pet

Hoses can also keep well as pets. This requires you have a terrarium, this is a kind of aquarium but without water. In this box of glass should you take care of plants, stone and wood and a little water to drink.
The bin should look like the spot where the snake normally lives in nature. Furthermore, the hose also need enough heat, this is done with, for example a heat lamp that hangs above your loft. The snake then eats the occasional mouse or insects that you can buy at the pet shop. Most snakes are bred to be sold as pets and not caught in the wild. Where drinking water hoses?
