What do snake eggs look like?


Snake eggs tend to be more oblong than bird eggs, and they have a soft, leathery texture rather than a hard shell. These eggs are typically white, beige, or off-white, and they are typically laid in a hidden area rather than a well-constructed nest like bird eggs.

Though not all snakes lay eggs, those that do tend to hide their eggs in damp, covered areas, such as in rotting logs or under a pile of fallen leaves. Snake eggs also tend to be laid in larger batches, or clutches, than bird eggs. Black rat snakes, for example, can lay as many as 30 eggs in a single clutch.
