Snakes: Amazing Creation

This photo was taken at Birds Nest Aviary at Opol, Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines. Well, it feels so good to have a pet like them. Well, I would like to recall the things that I’ve learned from my science class before even in biology. Snakes are described as long, no legs, carnivorous kind of reptile of the suborder Serpent that can be eminent from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and outer ears. Similar to all squamates, snakes are ecothermic, amniote vertebrates sheltered in overlapping scales. There are many classes of snakes that have skulls with plentiful joints than their lizard family, enabling them to ingest victim much larger than their heads with their movable jaws.
