Although eating is essential to survival, it also drives the aging process, say researchers from the University of the Pacific who studied the biological effects of consumption using corn snakes.
Snakes are remarkable climbers, able to scale nearly all types of trees with varying bark textures. Researchers from the University of Cincinnati recently took a closer look at how some of these slithering animals perform their acrobatic tricks.
The corn snake's genome has been sequenced for the first time, and reveals important information regarding the gene mutation responsible for albinism.
Snake Fungal Disease (SFD) is an emerging disease found in snakes throughout the eastern U.S. When infected, snakes exhibit discolored and crusty scabs, among many other abnormalities. However, researchers recently revealed the culprit behind the mysterious skin disease.
