Do all snakes have teeth?



  1. 0 Votes

    All snakes, even non-poisonous ones, have teeth. Snake’s teeth point backwards, which helps them to grip their prey. There are three different types of teeth a snake can have, depending on how they capture and kill prey. They are:

    -Constrictor teeth
    -Groove fanged
    -Hollow fanged

    All non-poisonous snakes have constrictor teeth, even if they do not actually constrict their prey. Poisonous snakes have either grooved fangs or hollow fangs.

    There is at least one species of snake which does not have teeth, at least not in the traditional sense. This is the African Egg-Eating Snake, which, as the name suggests, feeds solely on eggs. They do have “teeth-like projections” in the back of the mouth to help break the eggs they eat, but these are not generally considered teeth. They are known for having a generally calm disposition, though they will attempt to bite in order to scare off potential threats.
