How does a Snake move?
Snakes display upto 4 different types of movements:
Firstly, Serpentine locomotion. In this type of movement the snake moves in the form of a sinusoidal wave.
Secondly, Concertina or accordion locomotion. In this type of movement the body of the snake contracts and expands successively like an accordion or a spring.
Thirdly, Lateral displacement or sidewinding locomotion. In this type of movement the snake moves laterally by forming vertical waves. In this way it minimizes contact with the surface. This type of movement is typical of snake species found in desert areas.
Fourthly, Rectilinear locomotion. In this type of movement the snake crawls in a straight line with its body stretched. This type of movement is commonly found among larger snakes as it allows them to access narrow burrows of their potential prey.
