Jacksonville Florida Snake Situation: How to catch a snake in the house - Remember that a snake in the house, if there by accident, is going to be as afraid of you as you probably are of it. The snake wants to get outside, and sometimes all you have to do is steer it in that direction. You should never attempt to handle a snake if you don't know what species you are dealing with. A nonvenomous snake will be a lot less stressful to handle. A venomous snake should be left to the professionals. Be careful in harassing the snake too much. Even a non-lethal animal can strike out and bite. Many of these bites will bleed profusely and will be prone to secondary infection. Before you attempt to pick up the snake, make sure you have closed off any avenues of escape it may have. This will allow for you to grab the snake without too much hassle. Place the snake in a pillowcase and relocate the animal to an area with proper coverage and shelter. Snakes that enter a home because they are living in foundation cracks need to be taken off-property. The cracks need to be repaired or it is just a matter of time before new snakes discover the openings.
Hi, I loved your website it is very informative. We have been doing a lot of brush removal in or yard this spring and seem to have disturbed a nest of snakes. We usually see Garter snakes but these 3 did not look like that at all. I have been trying to find a picture of one and am having a hard time. In the mean time, I would like your professional opinion. These were juveniles 12" long. Blueish Grey body with black markings. It would try to strike and open it's mouth as if to bite. I will try and find it tomorrow and take a picture. Dana
Hi. Could you tell me what kind of snake this is? I've been looking at the water snakes you have pictures of but am still not sure. The kids have been seeing a lot of these when they are playing out by the sea-wall or kayaking in the "backyard". The water is brackish. I have told them to stay away from any snakes but would like to make sure it is not venomous. Thank you, Stephanie
Definitely not venomous. The two types of venomous water snake, the Cottonmouth and Copperhead, are extremely fat. That snake is, I don't know, "brown water snake" maybe.
