What are a snake's enemies?

Answer

A snake's enemies include birds, raccoons, coyotes, mongooses, turtles, crocodiles and many other animals. Some snakes are even eaten by other snakes.

Snakes have several adaptations to help them hide from or scare off predators. Some snakes scare their predators by huffing or hissing loudly. Rattlesnakes shake their tails to scare their enemies.

Some snakes have colors or patterns that act as a form of camouflage, while other snakes are able to burrow under leaves or sand to hide from predators.

Humans are one of the greatest threats to adult snakes. Some humans hunt snakes to use them for belts, handbags and shoes. Others capture snakes and sell them as pets. Humans also destroy the habitats of some snakes.
