Do Snakes Have Bones?

Yes, snakes have bones. Like all vertebrates, snakes possess a skeletal system composed of bones. Their skeleton provides structural support, protection for internal organs, and serves as an attachment point for muscles. Snakes have a highly specialized skeletal structure that allows them to be incredibly flexible and maneuverable. Their bones are elongated and numerous, enabling them to move and contort their bodies in various ways, including slithering and swallowing prey much larger than their head.
