A forked tongue... no voice... eyes that never close... dry scaly skin and long limbless bodies that appear to ooze across the ground often under the cover of the night. Sounds like a mutant beast from a horror movie, right? Not quite. Instead, it describes one of the most fascinating and highly evolved groups of animals ever to inhabit planet earth, snakes! Before you run for cover, take a few minutes to get to know alittle more about these phenomenal predators. You might lose some of your fear of them and gain respect (perhaps even a bit of awe) once you know what they do and how they do it!
