Name: Eastern coral snake
Country of origin: America
Type of skeleton: Internal skeleton - a vertebrate
Movement: Snakes have very different skeletons to other vertebrates - they have no legs! This means they cannot walk like we do - they slide their bodies in an 'S' shape from side to side, using muscles in their long bodies to creep along the ground.
Did you know? Snakes can have up to 500 vertebrae in their back bones - humans have 32 to 34!
