Dear Student

A snake's body consists of hundreds of vertebrae and ribs. The length of a snake corresponds to its backbone length, which has numerous muscles supporting it. During locomotion, the backbone and associated muscles function together, thus making the snakes slither. This slithering action of the snake leads to movements which seem like loops. The integrated action of muscles i.e.contractionandrelaxationlead to loop-like movements.
Thanks
