The snake is an elongate reptile of the suborder Serpentes. Snakes can be found in a variety of land and water habitats. They are actually found on every continent except Antarctica. Snakes have a long, narrow body. They have no eyelids or external ear openings. Snakes can have over 300 pairs of ribs. There are more than 2,200 snake species in the world, but only 20% of them are venomous. The fierce snake (Inland Taipan) is native to Australia and is the most venomous snake in the world. One bite is enough to kill 100 adult humans. The longest snake in the world is the python; reaching up to 33 feet long, while the biggest snake is the green anaconda, weighing up to 550 pounds.
