Episode 2: Snakes
The second episode of my podcast, "From Ew! to Oh!", is now available! This episode, which you can listen to on SoundCloud here, is all about snakes! Give it a listen! You can also read the script here.
Below is some extra content based on what's talked about in the episode. Enjoy and please feel free to comment below!
The photo above is of a snake's skull and jaws. You can see that the lower jaws are not connected at the front. This adaptation allows the snake to swallow prey much bigger than its mouth.
The smallest snake in the world (that scientists have discovered) is the Barbados threadsnake. As you can see, this snake is only slightly larger than a quarter.
