How do snakes mate?
Thanks for the information Indian - in actual fact, the paired male copulatory organs of snakes are called hemipenes - but I tried to simplify my reply as, if I had posted 'hemipenes' or 'peni' some people may not have understood - especially as there are children who watch this site.
no big deal but it bugged me. "Penises"is not the correct term. more than one penis is a "peni". pronounced peen-eye. just a little side bar.
Male snakes find a mate by following 'pheromones' (a scent trail that is laid down by the females) and once they come together they entwine and the male inserts one of his 2 penises into the female's 'vent' which is a slit-like opening which leads to her egg chamber - in the same way that most animals mate.
Some snakes give birth to live offspring (having incubated the eggs internally) whilst others lay their eggs in a 'nest'.
