Re: What Snake?


I'm guessing your trying to ID a type of snake you have seen.
With no location in your profile it's anyone's guess what it is.
Try a simple Google search with Snake ID and your state as the key words.

Something hinky about posting the pic, so it may show up 30 times.
Sorry..

Re: What Snake?


A better view of the head, some indication of size and your location would all help.

Re: What Snake?


Everyone knows to look for a rattle button on the tail, So I figure that you checked for a Rattlesnake, the Eastern Diamondback is smaller than the Western, So maybe.

Also the BULL snake very much resembles the Rattlesnake, but is non-poisonous, and no rattle.

You have the best kind though DEAD.

So take the carcass to your County AG extension office, they have herpetologist on staff to tell you more than you want to know.

Re: What Snake?


Yep, that's a snake!

I don't know a whole lot about snakes, but something about those markings says venomous ambush predator. Is the head arrowhead shaped, or more rounded/blunted?

12"? Juvenile? I wonder if it has siblings? Hm, interesting stuff. Keep the updates coming!

Re: What Snake?


No expert, but look up the Crotalus Horridus (what a name!) Looks a lot like a shriveled timber rattlesnake. Does it have a rattle?

Re: What Snake?


Looks like a rat snake, gets darker as it gets older. Better picture of the head would help looking down at it. As long as itís not a wide head, doesnít look like it is. The shape of the body is what Iím going by. Also called a chicken snake, at least here they are

Re: What Snake?


@yardmullet , you had an interesting picture, but it was incomplete. Next time, if you can, get a picture of the head and the tail.

Looks like that snake was a long-dead dried up specimen. Doesn't look like a pit viper, since the head looks too narrow.

Keep the wildlife pictures coming! Us city folk need reminders of the wild world sometimes!

P.S., also, maybe put your location in your signature? That will make it easy to give advice about most things. Click on your user name, then click on the little yellow pencil thingy and fill information. State is fine.

We know you're in TN in this thread, but we might not remember in the next one unless you tell us.

Sorry, umph getting off my soapbox.

Dave, in case no one told you. . . you have snakes in that wild yard of yours. You may not see them, but they see you!
