Snake habitat
Snakes can live in a variety of land and water environments. The most abundant and the largest snakes can be typically found in places that has a tropical climate such as rainforests. Snakes are cold blooded so they cannot afford to live in cold places such as Antarctica.

Snake nourishment
Snakes are carnivores. They are likely to eat only meat. Most of the time, they would eat rodents and other mammals such as birds, fishes, insects and eggs. Some snakes kill their prey by squeezing them to death, it does not necessary mean that they crush them; they tend to suffocate their victims first. Once dead, the prey would then be swallowed as a whole.
