Snakes have very strange senses – many are blind because they spend their lives in dark burrows and don't need to see. Others have quite good night vision but an only see objects very close to them. A lot of snakes are also deaf. Pythons and boas, some of the largest snakes in existence are all deaf.

However, that does not necessarily mean that they cannot detect what is going on around them – they just use different techniques. For example, pythons and boas have sensory pits on the scales on their lower and upper lips and these can detect movement on the ground by picking up vibrations.

These pit linings are also extremely sensitive to infra red radiation and act as heat receptors that are very efficient. This heat sensing apparatus is the most sensitive of any animal. Even at night, the receptors detect changes of less than 0.0001 degree Celsius.

Hi. Here I took the detail from google about snakes deaf hope its helpful for you. :)

Snakes have no visible ear, so they don't hear sounds as we do. But it's not quite right to say that snakes are deaf. They have vestiges of the apparatus for hearing inside their heads, and that setup is attached to their jaw bones, so they feel vibrations very well and may hear low-frequency airborne sounds.
