Reptiles include snakes. There are over 2900 species of snakes worldwide. Snakes are cold-blooded, which means that their internal temperature adapts to the environment in which they live. Snakes have been known to lie in the sun to increase their body temperature, and to cool off when it gets too hot, they go to the shade. All snake species are afraid of winter deserts, rivers, forests and oceans. To avoid cold temperatures, hibernation is used. Here’s a list of all the beautiful snakes around the globe.
