Snakes don’t have legs, or arms either. These reptiles look slippery and slimy, but their skin actually feels like cool soft leather. The smallest snakes are no larger than worms. All snakes are hunters and swallow their food whole, without chewing. Snakes are eaten by big birds such as eagles, hawks, and owls.
During cold winters, thousands of snakes may sleep together in a hole underground to keep each other warm.
There are about 2,900 species of snake. The best-known snakes include cobras, vipers, boas, and pythons. Snakes are found throughout the world except near the North and South poles. Most snakes live on the ground, but others prefer trees. Sea snakes live in water.
Snakes grow throughout their lives. A snake sheds its skin many times during its life.

Saxophone – great musical instrument

Saxophone is probably the most expressive instrument. It is one of the newer instruments in the musical spectrum. The saxophone’s history can be traced back over 150 years. It was invented by Adolphe Sax, an expert instrument maker and talented musician. The saxophone was patented on March 20, 1846.
Sax was born in 1814 in Brussels (Belgium) and grew up in the trade of instrument making. His father was an expert in instrument making. The boy had already become an expert by the age of six.
The saxophone was born when Sax combined a horn with the body of a brass instrument and the mouthpiece of a woodwind instrument. It was only one of a whole family of new instruments, which were also called the saxophones.
