About Snakes:


Snakes are elongated, limbless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes. Like all other squamates, snakes are ectothermic, amniote vertebrates covered in overlapping scales. Many species of snakes have skulls with several more joints than their lizard ancestors, enabling them to swallow prey much larger than their heads with their highly mobile jaws. To accommodate their narrow bodies, snakes' paired organs (such as kidneys) appear one in front of the other instead of side by side, and most have only one functional lung.


蛇是細長的、無肢的、食肉爬行動物蛇亞目。 像所有其他有鱗動物一樣,蛇是變溫動物,羊膜脊椎動物覆蓋著重疊的鱗片。 許多種類的蛇的頭骨比它們的蜥蜴祖先多幾個關節,這使它們能夠用高度靈活的下巴吞下比頭大得多的獵物。 為了適應它們狹窄的身體,蛇的成對器官(例如腎臟)不是並排出現在另一個之前而不是並排,並且大多數只有一個功能性肺。
