The snakes are considered a Suborder of Squamata, which is one of the four Orders of reptiles. While all snakes are superficially similar in body shape, they differ markedly in anatomy. In total there are roughly 2 500 species of snakes around the world. Snakes as a group are unusual in that every single species is carnivorous. Snakes range in size from only 10 cm in length to over 10 m! The largest species in Canada is the Rat Snake, which can reach 2.5 m in total length.
A "Virtual" Snake is given to the last player to 3 putt on any hole After the round, the person holding the snake owes the other members of the group the pre-agreed total of all three-putts. Gets pretty exciting the last few holes with some competitors playing snake-avoidance.
