Do snakes care for their young?

Answer

Yes and no. It can vary slightly from species to species, however broadly speaking, snakes do not care for their young after they are born. Most baby snakes are on their own as soon as they are born. Pregnant snakes however are very careful and particular when it comes to choosing a location to lay their eggs. They seek out a spot that is damp and warm, and free of predators. Some travel long distances to find the right spot, and many will stay near the place where they laid their eggs, to keep away predators. As you can see, mother snakes do care, however much of the caring comes before the baby snake is born.
