The most familiar example of moulting in [[reptile]]s is when [[snake]]s "shed their skin". This is usually achieved by the snake rubbing its head against a hard object, such as a rock (or between two rocks) or piece of wood, causing the already stretched [[skin]] to split. At this point, the snake continues to rub its skin on objects, causing the end nearest the head to peel back on itself, until the snake is able to crawl out of its skin, effectively turning the moulted skin inside-out. This is similar to how one might remove a [[sock]] from one's [[foot]] by grabbing the open end and pulling it over itself. The snake's skin is often left in one piece after the moulting process, including the discarded [[brille]] (ocular scale), so that the moult is vital for maintaining the animal's quality of vision. Conversely, the skins of [[lizard]]s generally fall off in pieces.
