Frontal scale

Frontal scale

Frontal scale refers to the scales of a snake which lie in the general region of the forehead of a snake, more sprecifically between the eyes and to the anterior of this area. These are analogous to the "frontal bone" on a human which corresponds to the forehead.

Snake scales attached to the frontals and to its anterior are called as prefrontals.
