Snakes

People think snakes are VERY dangerous creatures. Some actually are. Some are actually not. They are carnivores, which mean they only eat meat. They are a bit like legless lizards.There is an old myth about snakes that says in the Adam and Eve story when the snake tricks Eve to eat the apple,as punishment God took the snakes legs away.
Snakes are cold blooded, unlike as humans. All in the reptile family are cold blooded.
