117 | THE TERROR OF NESTS: As its name indicates, the #eggeatingsnake eats only eggs. For this it is perfectly equipped. Its mouth can expand so that the snake is able to swallow an egg three times the size of its head without breaking the egg. The neck swells like a windbag, and the egg can be seen moving under the skin. The snake looks like a knotted cord or a pipe ready to burst. As the egg moves down into the neck, it comes to a series of sharp, pointed vertebrae that cut it lengthwise. The contents go into the snake's stomach and the shell is rejected. The egg-eating snake will eat all the eggs it finds in a nest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This snake, partially tree-dwelling, lives in the wooded plains of equatorial and southern Africa. A related species is found in India. The African species, not very agile, prefers to find its food on the ground; but it will rob nests in trees if it must. Its diet depends entirely on the presence of birds' eggs. These are laid only once or twice a year, so the snake must gorge itself when it can and fast the rest of the time, living on reserves of stored fat. This diet apparently suits the egg-eating snake, which is very common in Africa. .
