Facts about Snakes:
Snakes are reptiles and belong to the same group of animals as lizards, turtles and crocodiles. Reptiles have dry scales that shed periodically. Unlike mammals and birds, reptiles cannot generate body heat and depend on outside sources to raise their body temperature. This trait makes them wait out long periods of extensive cold and hot conditions that we experience in South Carolina.
Snakes differ from other reptiles by having no legs, ears, or eyelids, and by possessing only one functional lung. The most notable characteristic of a snake is its extremely long, slender body. A snake’s body allows it to effortlessly climb, swim, and slip into the smallest spaces including your home and basement areas of your house. Although snakes lack ears and cannot technically hear, they do have the ability to detect low frequency vibrations from the air and ground. Instead of eyelids, snakes have a clear scale covering for each eye. The shedding of this scale causes the eye to cloud over for a few days, which led to the myth that snakes go blind during certain times of the year in South Carolina.
