Snakes cannot survive in places where the ground stays frozen year round so there are no snakes north of the Arctic Circle or in Antarctica. Some islands, including Ireland and New Zealand, do not have snakes at all.
Snakes can’t bite food so have to swallow it whole. Snakes have flexible jaws which allow them to eat prey bigger than their head.
Some species of snake, such as cobras and black mambas, use venom to hunt and kill their prey but Pythons kill their prey by tightly wrapping around it and suffocating it in a process called constriction.
