Re: I've been asked to do a presentation on snakes and their habitats. Anyone know how closesly dependant snakes actually are to the habitat/plant structures? Or is it simply a matter of their habitat being the place where their preferred prey is?

Snakes don't eat plants, but their prey may, and their prey may be highly dependent on a specific, narrow range of local plants for food, shelter, etc. Snakes depend on the local flora for shelter (and this dependence may be fairly specific, foraging (their coloration may match specific floral patterns)and microenvironment (humidity levels, etc.) These are probably only a few of the ways snakes depend on the flora in their specific habitats.
