Best Answer

Although their fluid motion may be deceiving, it does have bones. In fact, SNAKES ARE FULL OF BONES, from sectioned backbones, to which are attached from 1 to 145 pairs of ribs, to the ball and joint sockets which attach the numerous sections of backbones together.

Yes. If you've ever taken the time to do a search on Google for "snake skeleton" you'll quickly find out that snakes do in fact have bones, from their head, right to their tail.
