Snakes are found in many different countries, however there are only 6 countries in the whole world that does not have snakes. There are 3600 different species of snakes , and only 725 of those snake species are venomous. In order to tell if a snake is venomous or not one will have to take note of their eye. Venomous snakes generally have slitted or elliptical pupils, while non venomous snakes usually have round pupils.
The ability of living for a long period of time is definitely shown by snakes. Snakes are able to live for 170 years in captivity , but 100 years in the wild. Snake skin does not stretch like human skin so their skin has to shed 3 to 6 times a year in a process called ecdysis.
