The Anatomy of a Snake

Snakes are very unique from an anatomical perspective. While they are vertebrates and in many ways very similar to us, there are a few major differences. First, because of their length they have many more vertebrae and ribs than we do. Snakes don't have symmetrical lungs like we do either. Instead their right lung is exaggerated and extends a great distance throughout the body.
