Can Snakes hear Snakes have no ears on the outside of their heads. This means they do not hear sounds in the air as you do. So shouting and loud noises do not perturb them. But snakes are very sensitive to vibrations. If there are vibrations in the ground near them, snakes notice and respond. When a snake seems to "hear" you coming, it is really feeling the vibrations of your footsteps. Since snakes are deaf, they cannot be charmed by music. The "dancing" cobras used by Hindu snake charmers are only responding to the sway of the charmer's pipe and to the tap of his foot.
