Snakes and eggs

Snakes and eggs

This is an excerpt from the latest issue of Singularity:

Most species of snakes are oviparous, meaning they lay eggs and their young hatch from the eggs. Oviparous comes from ovi, meaning “egg”, and parous, meaning “birth” or “having offspring”.

I researched on the topic because a colleague said all snakes lay eggs. Out of curiosity, I looked up information on various snakes and found there were 3 categories: oviparous, viviparous, and ovoviviparous.
