What is a "serpent"?

A serpent is a reptile typically characterized by its long and slender body, scaly skin, and lack of limbs. It is often associated with various mythologies and folklore, symbolizing wisdom, cunning, or even evil. Serpents are known for their ability to slither and move with agility, often found in diverse habitats ranging from forests to deserts. They possess a unique form of locomotion, using muscular contractions to propel themselves forward. Serpents can vary in size, from small harmless species to large and venomous ones. They play important roles in many ecosystems, contributing to the balance of predator-prey relationships.
