Does a Snake Have a Heart?

Answer

Snakes have a heart that is enclosed in a sac called a pericardium. A snake's heart is divided into three chambers, i.e. two atria, which receive blood from the body and the lungs, and, one ventricle, which circulates blood around the body. The heart is located at the bifurcation of the bronchi, although it can move around the body.
