Transcript of Snakes
What is a snake?
A snake is a cold blooded animal with dry, scaly skins. They breath with lungs and have no back bones. They have no legs. Snakes are reptiles and are related to crocodiles, lizards and turtles.
Snakes don't have eye lids
Snakes do not have a family
female snakes are usually longer.
Not all snakes have fangs only snakes that kill their prey with venom.
Many snakes have only one working lung Their right lung. There isn't enough room in their bodies for the second, much smaller, left lung to function.
female grass snakes lay up to40 eggs a time. They lay them somewhere like in a compost heap, because the rotting plants keep them warm and help them hatch quickly.
Snakes do not have ears. They hear by feeling vibrations through the ground.
Food and prey
Snakes most favorite food are reptiles and Amphibians (What are amphibians? )Amphibians are animals like Frogs and tadpoles (what are reptiles?) Reptiles are a cold blooded animals with scaly skin. Snakes also eat insets But the insect doesn't fill the snakes tummy up So the snake will have to eat something else. Snakes also eat fish.
Mammals such as weasels and fox's eat snakes and big snakes eat small snakes. Birds like hawks and eagles also eat snakes. In fact snakes are the main food source for some birds of prey.

Life cycle of a snake
A mother snake lays eggs. She lays her eggs in a safe place on the ground. Most female snakes leave their eggs once they have laid them. After about 2 months the baby snakes are ready to hatch. Her eggs are like strong paper- not like birds eggs that can easily break. Snakes have a special tooth called the egg tooth that helps them break through the egg. When they hatch the baby snake is able to slither off and look after themselves. Snakes start shedding their skin by rubbing up against rocks and other hard places. Once the skin is loose, they crawl out of the old layer.

Snakes and the Bible
Genesis 3 v 1-5 There are many verses in the bible that talk about snakes but the one I want to talk about is in Genesis 3 when Adam and Eve fall into sin. Genesis 3 The serpent was more clever than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. The serpent said to the woman, "Did God really say, you must not eat the fruit of any tree that is in the garden'?" v2 The woman said to the serpent, "We can eat the fruit of the trees that are in the garden.v3 But God did say, 'You must not eat the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden. Do not even touch it. If you do, you will die.'" v4 You can be sure that you won't die," the serpent said to the woman. v5 God knows that when you eat the fruit of the tree, you will know things you have never known before. You will be able to tell the difference between good and evil. You will be like God."
v13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, "What have you done?" The woman said, "The serpent tricked me. That's why I ate the fruit."
There are not many animals that talk in the bible but a snake is one of them like it say's in Genesis.
