Snakes, like other reptiles, have skin covered in scales. Snakes are entirely covered with scales or scutes of various shapes and sizes, known as snakeskin as a whole. A scale protects the body of the snake, aids it in locomotion, allows moisture to be retained within, alters the surface characteristics such as roughness to aid in camouflage, and in some cases even aids in prey capture (such as Acrochordus). The simple or complex colouration patterns (which help in camouflage and anti-predator display) are a property of the underlying skin, but the folded nature of scaled skin allows bright skin to be concealed between scales then revealed in order to startle predators.

  • Die Schlangenbeschuppung oder -pholidose bezeichnet die Lage und Anordnung der Hornschuppen der Schlangen sowie deren Besonderheiten im Aufbau. Schlangenschuppen sind die Körperbedeckung der Schlangen, deren Epidermis wie bei anderen Reptilien von Hornschuppen unterschiedlicher Form und Größe bedeckt ist. Sie schützen den Körper der Schlange, verhindern den Flüssigkeitsverlust, unterstützen die Fortbewegung, verändern die Körperoberfläche hinsichtlich Eigenschaften wie zum Beispiel der Rauigkeit, um die Tarnung zu unterstützen.

  • Las serpientes, al igual que otros reptiles, tienen la piel cubierta con escamas.​ Las serpientes están completamente cubiertas con escamas o escudos queratinosos, de diversas formas y tamaños. Las escamas protegen su cuerpo y, ayudan en la locomoción, permiten mantener la humedad dentro del mismo, alteran las características superficiales tales como rugosidad para ayudar en el camuflaje, y en algunos casos aun les son útiles en la captura de sus presas (por ejemplo en Acrochordus). Los patrones de coloración simples o complejos (que les ayudan a mimetizarse y muestran una actividad contra la depredación) son una propiedad de la piel subyacente, pero la naturaleza plegada de la piel escamada permite que la piel brillante oculta entre las escamas sea luego revelada para asustar a los depred
  • Ular, sebagaimana reptil lainnya, memiliki sisik-sisik yang menutupi kulitnya. Tubuh ular tertutupi seluruhnya oleh sisik-sisik, yang memiliki beraneka bentuk dan ukuran, tersebut. Sisik-sisik itu berfungsi untuk melindungi tubuh, membantu pergerakan ular, mempertahankan kelembaban, berguna dalam kamuflase dan mengubah penampilan, dan untuk beberapa kasus juga membantu dalam menangkap mangsa (misalnya pada ular kadut).
