Interesting Facts about Snakes

Snakes are known for their remarkable methods of hunting and self-defense, including venomous bites, constricting, and mimicry. Interestingly, not all snakes are venomous, and those that are use their venom primarily to subdue prey rather than for defense. Snakes play a crucial role in the ecosystem as both predators and prey, helping to maintain the balance by controlling rodent populations and being a food source for larger predators. Some species have the ability to sense the body heat of their prey through thermal receptors, allowing them to hunt in complete darkness. Despite common misconceptions, snakes are not slimy; their skin is actually dry and often has a smooth or slightly rough texture.
