The snake gets a check-up. A vet checks the snake’s heart. The doctor uses an ultrasound.
Experts try similar tests on giraffes and sharks. However, snake hearts interest them more. A snake heart is different from a human heart.
Difficult words: check-up (medical test), vet (animal’s doctor), ultrasound (special medical scan).
