The Life Cycle of a Snake
Some snakes lay eggs. Snake eggs are not hard like bird eggs. They are soft like leather.The baby snakes break out by using a special egg tooth. They lose the egg tooth after they are born.
Some snakes (like copperheads, boa constrictors, rattlesnakes, and garter snakes) give birth to live babies. They do not lay eggs.
Once baby snakes are born, they must eat so they can grow.
Snakes start shedding their skin by rubbing up against rocks and other hard places. Once the skin is loose, they crawl out of the old layer.
