Pub. Date:
Snakes are not slimy but silky to the touch and most are non-aggressive, preferring to threaten or escape than attack. This book discusses muscular and skeletal structure, and how snakes move: creeping, wriggling, climbing, sidewinding, swimming and flying. The different organs: skin, (scales and shedding), eyes, tongue and Jacobson's Organ (for smell), heat sensors, 'teeth' and fangs; eating and digestion; defense and attack; temperature control. 120 color illustrations.
