Description: So this was an awesome tutorial I think I've made showing you guys the differences between the abundance of snake species and anatomies. To make this tutorial easy though, I've given you guys diagrams of the inside out anatomy of the serpent as well as an example of the different snake head shapes. I hope you guys will love this lesson, because I have a crap-ton of others to submit. See you guys in the next tutorial, haha!
