We chew the food to get quick calories Ithink. Without chewing our stomach will act as a food basket I hope. For us intestine doing the digesting and teeth does crushing. As for as snake it just swallows through its mouth. Even though it is having teeth it just swallows anything its favourite. Snakes crushing of food takes places inside the body upper and lower bones ,so that most snakes makes rolls of the body after swallowing food, i hope this may right.

we should chew it to make it into pieces as it goes down in our stomach...we will be choke if we dont chew it first..snakes swallow their food in whole...its their way of eating..

from experiences since childhood we should chew our food inorder to be able to digest it fully well when it reaches our stomach...snakes as what i have read but not seen yet live...is that they tend to swallow it without chewing their prey coz its their nature of eating..
