    [looking] Snake muscles ref

    I'm looking for snake muscle ref. I looked everywhere and there is very little info about the muscles on a snakes body.

    I am trying to understand how these work and where they are connected to the ribs layer by layer so I can apply the same principle to a project I'm working on

    I'm trying to see if it is possible for chinese dragons (the wingless type) to be able to exist from a biological standpoint and which properties of these dragons are possible

    for example, spitting fire: you got 2 options
    A, liquid type: 2 liquids that when in contact with each other ignite.
    B, gas type: igniting a gasmixture.

    B is the most propable. Farts for example contain 50% hydrogen: a lighter then air gas and when ignited at 560 degrees celcius produces a hot flame. but when combined with oxygen (made via fotosynthese) can produce a flame over 3000 degrees celcius (used for cutting steel).

    Why is hydrogen a good choice, well hydrogen is 14 times lighter then air, which would reduce the weight a dragon has dramaticly. so If such a dragon would have large quantaties of hydrogen in its body, it would be allot more easy to being able to fly
    So i'm trying to build up an image of such a dragon layer by layer: bone, organs, muscles, skin etc.

    Which is why I'm looking for this snake muscle ref.


    Thanks

    Chinese dragons have legs...

    Would reference of skinks and other reptiles with significantly elongate bodies help more than a totally legless creature?





    for example, spitting fire: you got 2 options
    A, liquid type: 2 liquids that when in contact with each other ignite.
    B, gas type: igniting a gasmixture.
    The bombadier beetle can rapidly shoot a mixture of chemicals at 100 C, heat accomplished via a chemical reaction. It doesnt ignite, it's just hot enough to deter or kill predators.
