Thread: prehensile

  1. Unregistered


    I wonder if it's correct to say 'snakes have pretensile body'?
    Is the adjective word can merely go with tails?
    thank you

    Prehensile means able to hold on to things, especially by curling around them. So for some snakes, yes, they have prehensile bodies.
