Snakes in Cryptozoology

Cryptozoology - Occult World

A snake is a member of about 19 reptile families (suborder Serpentes, order Squamata) that has no limbs, voice, ears, or eyelids. They also have a long, slender body.
About 2,900 snake species are known to exist, and most of them live in the tropics. Very few snake species are able to live beyond the Tropic of Cancer or Tropic of Capricorn, and only one species, common viper (Vipera berus) lives beyond the Arctic Circle. Their skin is covered with scales.

They can see well, and they can taste the air with their tongues by flicking them in and out. Though they do not have a voice, they hiss instead. Most live on the ground, others live in the water, and some live under the soil. Snakes do not have legs. Like all reptiles, snakes need the heat of the sun to control their body temperature. That’s why most snakes are in the warm, humid tropical regions of the world.
