Egg-Eating Snake

About Egg-Eating Snake

The Egg-Eating Snake eats bird eggs, which is how they got their name. They swallow the egg whole. As the egg moves down the snake’s neck, downward pointing spines break the egg shell. The contents travel to the snake’s stomach, but the snake will regirgitate the egg shell. There are six species of egg-eating snakes that all live in Africa.
