Some interesting Snake Facts:
They are reptiles and belong to the same group of animals as lizards, turtles and crocodiles. Reptiles have dry scales that shed periodically. Unlike mammals and birds, reptiles cannot generate body heat and depend on outside sources to raise their body temperature. This trait makes them wait out long periods of extensive cold and hot conditions that we experience in the The Woodlands areas or Texas.
They differ from other reptiles by having no legs, ears, or eyelids, and by possessing only one functional lung. The most notable characteristic of one is its extremely long, slender body. Their body allows them to effortlessly climb, swim, and slip into the smallest spaces including your home and basement areas of your house. Although they lack ears and cannot technically hear, they do have the ability to detect low frequency vibrations from the air and ground. Instead of eyelids, they have a clear scale covering for each eye. The shedding of this scale causes the eye to cloud over for a few days, which led to the myth that they go blind during certain times of the year in The Woodlands.
