      Copperhead

      Corn snake 

    • C.

      Kingsnake

    • D.

      Flower pot snake

    Correct Answer
    B. Corn snake 
    Explanation
    Among the options you've provided, the snake that doesn't have to have a mate to lay eggs is the "Corn snake." Corn snakes are a type of snake that can reproduce through a process called parthenogenesis, where females can lay fertile eggs without mating with a male snake. This ability is not common among all snake species, but it is known to occur in certain species, including some types of boas and pythons as well.

    • A.

      Green anaconda

    • B.

      Reticulated python

    • C.

      King cobra

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Reticulated python
    Explanation
    The reticulated python is the longest snake in the world. It can grow up to 30 feet in length, making it longer than the green anaconda and king cobra. Therefore, the correct answer is reticulated python.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which snake can sense light with its tail?

    • A.

      Copperhead

    • B.

      Olive sea snake

    • C.

      Habu

    • D.

      California king snake

    Correct Answer
    B. Olive sea snake
    Explanation
    The olive sea snake is the correct answer because it has a specialized organ called the "photoreceptive tubercles" located on its tail. These tubercles contain light-sensitive cells that allow the snake to perceive and respond to changes in light levels. This adaptation helps the olive sea snake navigate and hunt effectively in its marine environment.

  • 4. 

    Which of these snakes is non-venomous?

    • A.

      Cottonmouth

    • B.

      Taipan

    • C.

      Python

    • D.

      Black mamba

    Correct Answer
    C. Python
    Explanation
    The python is a non-venomous snake. Unlike the cottonmouth, taipan, and black mamba, which are all venomous snakes, the python kills its prey by constriction rather than injecting venom. Therefore, the python is the correct answer as the non-venomous snake in this question.

    What do snakes not have?

    • A.

      Teeth

    • B.

      Eyelids

    • C.

      Eyes

    • D.

      Both A & B

    Correct Answer
    B. Eyelids
    Explanation
    Snakes do not have eyelids. Unlike humans and many other animals, snakes do not have movable eyelids to protect their eyes. Instead, they have a transparent scale called a spectacle or brille that covers and protects their eyes. This scale does not blink or close like eyelids do, allowing snakes to keep their eyes open at all times, even when they are sleeping or shedding their skin. This adaptation helps snakes to detect movement and potential threats in their environment.

  • 6. 

    Which of these snakes does not lay eggs?

    • A.

      Gaboon viper

    • B.

      Timber rattlesnake

    • C.

      Ball python

    • D.

      Both A & C

    Correct Answer
    A. Gaboon viper
    Explanation
    The Gaboon viper does not lay eggs. This snake is known for giving live birth, which means that the offspring develop inside the mother's body and are born live. This is in contrast to snakes that lay eggs, where the eggs are laid and then hatch outside of the mother's body. The Timber rattlesnake and Ball python, on the other hand, are snakes that do lay eggs.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What do snakes smell with?

    • A.

      Tongue

    • B.

      Eyes

    • C.

      Head

    • D.

      Tail

    Correct Answer
    A. Tongue
    Explanation
    Snakes use their tongues to smell. They have a specialized organ called the Jacobson's organ located on the roof of their mouth, which allows them to pick up scent particles in the air. When a snake flicks its tongue out, it collects these particles, and then inserts its tongue into the Jacobson's organ to analyze the scents. This helps snakes to locate prey, navigate their environment, and communicate with other snakes. Therefore, the correct answer is "Tongue".

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which snake has the longest fangs?

    • A.

      Habu

    • B.

      Eyelash viper

    • C.

      Black mamba

    • D.

      Gaboon viper

    Correct Answer
    D. Gaboon viper
    Explanation
    The Gaboon viper has the longest fangs among the given options. These venomous snakes are known for their exceptionally long fangs, which can reach up to two inches in length. The length of their fangs allows them to deliver a deep bite and inject a substantial amount of venom into their prey or potential threats. This makes the Gaboon viper one of the most dangerous snakes in Africa.
