" Snakes" by Marta, 5A

Hi, friends!.
My post is about snakes. They are very long.The skin of a snake is covered in scales.Living snakes are found on every continent except Antarctica and on most islands.All snakes are strictly carnivorous, eating small animals including lizards, other snakes, small mammals, birds, eggs, fish, snails or insects. Because snakes cannot bite or tear their food to pieces, they must swallow prey whole. The body size of a snake has a major influence on its eating habits. Smaller snakes eat smaller prey.They´ve got a sticky tongue. Snakes are very dangerous. I´m afraid of snakes. And you?.
