We can help you identify your snake. Did you find a snake that is nothing like any you have seen before? Did you look through the list of common snakes for your state on this site and din’t find any information?
Let us help you identify your snake!
Upload a picture of your snake as a comment to this post below in the “Leave a reply” section at the bottom of the page. Along with the photograph, please add the following information:
- Description of the snake (helps with the identification but is not mandatory)
- City and U.S. State where the snake was found
- Your name how you want to be credited on our website
By uploading a picture, you are giving us permission to use the picture on this site. Please only upload pictures you own the copyright to. Do not upload pictures taken from other web sources without proper crediting. Any pictures we use, we will place your name and city where it was found beneath the picture as the photographer.
When uploading your picture, you are required to enter your email address. Your email address will not be posted publicly. As soon as we have found an ID for your snake, you will be notified by email to the email address provided by you.
Taking the perfect picture of your snake
The more detail can be seen, the better. It is easiest for others or for us to identify your snake if the photograph is taken from the top of the snake.
Please upload the picture as its own file to the comment form below. Our upload form allows all standard image files up to a size of 15 MB. It is not possible to upload .zip files or more than one picture per upload. If you have more than one picture of your snake sighting, please upload them separately and copy the description text including the location along with it.

If for some reason, the upload form doesn’t work or you prefer that your snake picture is not published publicly, you can send us an email with the information to USAsnakeID@gmail.com and we will get back to you with an ID via email. However, we do prefer that you upload your picture in the comment form below as it will benefit all our readers.
