Our goal is to help people from across the United States identify snakes they have seen in the wild or around their homes. Too many snakes are killed every season by people who are afraid of them. Most of these snakes are absolutely harmless and couldn’t harm a person or a pet.
We want to give you the resources to identify those snakes and be knowledgeable how to deal with them. You can let harmless snakes go. They won’t hurt you.
USA Snakes is free. We will never charge anything for our services in helping to ID a snake, sharing our knowledge or whatever help we can offer to you. However, we can use help in several ways:
- Help Finding Snakes
- Spread the name of USA Snakes
- Email Quality Pictures
Help Finding Snakes
There is so much work to do to fill this site. There are so many snake species throughout the USA that I haven’t covered on this site yet. I need people from other states to send me pictures of the snakes. They dont have to be great quality. Just good enough to see the colors and patterns. Whatever state you may live in, if you can send me pictures of snakes, it would be appreciated.
Here you can read more about how to describe a snake and how to take the ideal picture so we can identify the snake for you.
Spread the Name of USA Snakes
As mentioned above, I need pictures from all states. If you can spread the news of USA Snakes on facebook, twitter and other media sources, so people from other states will learn of USAsnakes.com, it would help me receive more pics of snakes from other states. This would also help my site be found in search engines and that will help it be found by those in other states as well.
Email Quality Snakes
Along with needing pictures for this site, what I also need is more quality pics. Pictures that show great detail up close of each kind of snake. If you have a good camera and are not afraid of snakes, please email me any high quality pics you can take. I cannot make any promises I will use the pics you send, or when I will get them on if I do use them. I cannot offer any payment in return. All I can promise is to add your name as the photographer and the location of where you found the snake.
