How Do Snakes Mate?

After the male wraps his tail around the female, the mating proceeds in much the same way as with humans. The male has two appendages, hemipenes, that are sex organ(s). One of these is inserted during mating into the female's vent or cloaca (hole in the females tail). Once coupled, the male tries to impregnate the female.
