Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The keel-bellied water snake is a marine homalopsine snake found in Malaysia, noted for its unusual dentition. It belongs to the monotypic genus Bitia.In all other snakes, any enlarged teeth are located on the dentary or maxilla, with the inner, palatine teeth of the upper jaw being smaller. In Bitia hydroides, the palatine teeth are greatly enlarged. Not enough is known about this animal's feeding behavior or ecology to attempt to infer a function of this peculiar arrangement.show more
