How do i describe my stock of snakes? I am a snake breeder?

Use the Farm Inventory section of IRS Publication 225 Farmer's Tax Guide at this link as a guide.  I've copied the Livestock paragraph here with areas of emphasis in bold:

 

Livestock.

 

Livestock held primarily for sale must be included in inventory. Livestock held for draft, breeding, or dairy purposes can either be depreciated or included in inventory. Also see Unit-livestock-price method, later. If you are in the business of breeding and raising chinchillas, mink, foxes, or other fur-bearing animals, these animals are livestock for inventory purposes.
