Snakes need to support their own weight but unlike other animals don't have limbs to bear the load. It is the ribs that have to support all the muscles and organs of the body. Snakes have a large number of ribs. Some species have as many as 400!

Snakes do not have a breastbone, the ribs are attached at the top of each vertebra. This gives the snake lots of flexibility of movement.
