Snake Behavior

All snakes are deaf to sounds, but they sense vibrations. Most snakes are solitary and all snakes are strictly carnivorous. Some of them have a venomous bite, which they use to kill the prey before eating it. Other snakes kill their prey by constriction, while others swallow the prey whole and alive. Snakes eat rodents, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, insects, eggs. Snakes are mostly terrestrial, but there are also arboreal and aquatic species.
