You can use the DBMS_METADATA package to reverse-engineer the CREATE TABLE command for any table in the database. You can perform a query similar to the following:
SELECT dbms_metadata.get_ddl('TABLE','EMP','SCOTT') FROM dual;
Or, you can query for all of your tables using the Data Dictionary:
SELECT dbms_metadata.get_ddl('TABLE',table_name,USER) FROM user_tables;
