Snakes eat many small animals such as frogs, salamanders, insects, worms, rodents, and birds, with larger ones often feeding on larger prey. They, can kill their prey in a variety of ways. Venomous snakes have sharp, hollow fangs, for piercing skin and injecting venom. These fangs are located in the upper jaw and are connected to venom glands. Nonvenomous snakes, use constriction to capture and restrain their prey. They bite their intended prey and quickly wrap themselves around it, the prey is then consumed whole. They Posses the ability to open their mouths to surprising sizes which allows them to consume prey larger than their mouth would typically allow.
Cold blooded in nature, snakes will often be seen laying in a sunny area, warming themselves. During cold months snakes will hibernate often along with several other snakes to maximize body warmth.
