Serpentes (suborder) (Squamata (order), Reptilia (class), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Suborder containing around 2,900 species of reptiles with a greatly elongated body, tapering tail, smooth scaly integument, and in some species, venomous properties. Snakes represent a lizard that, over the course of evolution, has undergone structural reduction, simplification, and loss as well as specialization of characteristics. All snakes lack external limbs, but not all legless reptiles are snakes. All snakes are carnivorous and can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids, limbs, external ears, and vestiges of forelimbs.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 含約兩千九百種爬蟲類的亞目。牠們的身體細長,尾巴越近尾端漸細,具平滑的鱗狀表皮,某些種類具毒腺。蛇是蜥蜴演化而成的,經過簡化減少甚至失去某些蜥蜴的構造,多了某些特化特徵。所有的蛇皆無外肢,但無足爬蟲類不見得是蛇。蛇為食肉性動物,與無足蜥蜴不同的是,蛇無眼瞼、四肢、外耳,以及前肢帶的痕跡。
