The Biology of Snakes 

There are a lot of snake species in the wildlife. But the common feature among them is that they don’t have eyelids, which are probably why their other senses are heightened.

They swallow their food whole because they can’t chew.  

The Behavior of Snakes 

We are afraid of snakes because of their appearance and hissing sound. However, they are not all dangerous because most snakes are non-venomous. They are aggressive once they sense an aggressive behavior from you. If you see a snake on the way, they will leave you alone once you slowly walk away. The reason why a lot of people are bitten by snakes is because they attack first, thinking that the snakes will attack them.  

Snakes live in different habitats that are why there are aquatic snakes and also climber snakes. They kill their prey by waiting patiently until the prey is within reach. Most of the time, they kill the prey through their venom, some strike their prey and others also use constriction. Then they eat the prey whole.

Getting Rid of Snakes 

Our initial reaction when we see a snake in our property is that we want to get rid of them immediately. A wise choice is calling a wildlife removal company instead of trying to get rid of them on your own. You don’t know how snakes behave, and professionals do. Do not try to catch it because it’s when the biting occurs. The snake will bite you as a defense mechanism once it sees you getting violent and aggressive.
