Where do snakes poop?
Once the meal is reduced to poop, the snake can get rid of it through an anal opening, or cloaca, which is Latin for’sewer.’This opening can be found at the end of a snake’s belly and beginning of its tail; unsurprisingly, the feces are the same width and length as a human’s.
In the wild, snakes use their cloacal openings to catch their prey, such as frogs, lizards, birds, and small mammals. In captivity, however, they use them for a variety of purposes, including defecating and urinating, as well as for mating.
