As far as I know, only mammals experience menstruation. Snakes are reptiles, ergo, no period. Like birds, reptiles lay eggs and to my knowledge (although I am not an expert), anything that lays eggs and does not give live birth would not menstruate. Also, reptiles are cold-blooded, so their blood flow is not conducive to such a 'phenomenon' as menstruation.
