Snakes are carnivorous reptiles that hunt their prey in various ways; the diet of the snake depends on the way it hunts as well as its habitat. For example snakes like pythons and boas which hunt by constricting themselves around the prey are able to eat larger creatures while snakes that venom as a hunting aid generally eat smaller creatures.

The main diet of a snake comprises of small mammals like rodents and hamsters, birds, eggs, insects as well as reptiles like lizards and even smaller snakes. The feeding technique of a snake is unique in the sense that they do not chew their food but swallow it whole on account of their lower jaw which adjusts itself according to the size of the prey. It has been observed that a particular species of a snake will more often than not hunt a particular prey like for example king cobras are known to hunt mica and gerbils.

Depends on what kind of snake you have,is it a pet or just snakes in general? Also how big is it? The large snake like a boa,ect.ect. Will eat mice,rabbits or chickens and it depends on how big the snake is as to how big or small the food should be.Also snakes want them alive,they like to kill and eat it, unless its a very small boa,ect...then you might want to feed them new born mice also called pinkies,you can freeze them,then let them thaw just to room temp.just before feeding time. And never ever hold the food in your hand! The snake will strike then wrap its self around the food to kill,and your hand WILL look like food.

Snake's eat a HEAP of thing's a day! They eat about 4 egg's for breakfast (cause they eat egg's!), about 3 bug's for morning tea , about 5 small animal's for lunch , about 2 lizard's for afternoon tea, about 6 smaller snake's for dinner and about 2 mica and 2 gerbil's for dessert! How do they eat that much? They have great , amazing hunting skill for eating and getting stuff for their family! Oh and they some time's eat rat's for a snack ! And some time's when snake's are really hungry they eat anything they can catch! They don't eat people, only poison snake's poison people witch is true! I know all this cause I'm a zoologist, that mean's I study animal's all kind of  animals! If you want to know what snake's drink , they drink water, just water! Nothing else like coke, fan-ta or sprite, they don't even know what coke fan-ta or sprite is! So they only drink water. That's the end of my answer!
