Snakes were natural reptiles that had no legs. They slithered along the ground or in trees in search of food, which consisted of small mammals, insects, and birds. In many parts of the world, snakes were seen as helpful creatures, due to their feeding on unwanted vermin.
These snakes were often long, large, and powerful. They used their massive bodies to warp around their prey and slowly squeeze the air from its lungs before consuming it whole. After feeding, these snakes often crawled up a tree to digest their meal over the course of many days.
