and rarely do they eat plants. Snakes can eat Baton Rouge insects and reptiles such as lizards, some species of snakes can
eat smaller snakes also. In most cases, feces of most carnivorous animals can be mushy in appearance , and that
may be as a result of the high fiber contents.
Snake feces often appear mushy, and smooth in texture, some snake feces may contain the fur or some skins of the animals they eat , and that may result from the indigestible nature of such Louisiana animals. Snake feces are somewhat consistent with some smooth edges. Snakes are believed to pee and poop from a single hole, thus their feces can be running in texture. While many people may think that snake feces will be thin and long, but that is not the case as the feces are much fatter than one may think.
