Snakes and Eggs
How do snakes lay there eggs?
the snakes are kind of strange animals,
such long body, no feet, and some have venom
into their mouths!
Then to be born they are a little different also:
some snakes lay eggs, and some have their babies
born alive, like us, that is not from eggs.
All female snakes have an special opening,
more or less in the middle of their body from
where they lay the eggs and also from where
the baby snake is born.
The eggs are laid just at the land and stay there
with no special care, very few species of snakes
take care until they hatch. Both the little snakes
that are born from eggs and the ones that are
born already alive, after a few minutes of beeing
born are ready to take care of themselves, not
needing the parents (or the mother) special feeding
or any help to learn how to live alone.
I told you the snakes are strange!
