Snakes are reptiles.

Snakes are not slimy. They are covered in scales which are just bumps on the skin. Their skin is hard and glossy. It is to reduce friction as the snake slithers along the ground.

Snakes are cold blooded. Snakes often sun bake on the rocks in the warm water to heat their body up.

Most snakes live in the country. Some type of snakes live in trees and some live in water. But most live on the ground in deserted rabbit burrows, in thick, long grass and in old logs.

Snakes eat frogs, lizards, mice and other snakes. The Anaconda can eat small crocodiles an even wild boars.
