San Jose California Snake Situation: Hello, I read your site and was going to take you up on your offer to ID a snake skin if we sent it in, but it's now been in our backyard 3 days with sprinkler system and is all shriveled. I do have the attached picture taken when it was relatively fresh. The skin was found in our backyard on 6/25/14. We live in Los Gatos, CA. There are rattlesnakes in the area. A month ago one was killed by our neighbor and another by neighbor's cat. Can you ID this as a venomous snake from this pic. Thanks. Sincerely, Eric
Definitely not a rattlesnake. Looks like a garter snake to me.
Hi I stumbled upon your site, snake-removal.com, and read the article about how difficult it is to identify the species of snake from its shed skin. You indicated someone could snail mail the skin or e-mail the pics and you might identify it. I am curious about the skin I've attached pictures of. Found it on the drain pipe next to the house. I understand the basics, if you have a food source, a snake may find your yard. Pretty sure there is a good food source since I live near a creek and have a nicely shaded yard with plenty of warm spots for sunning and good eats! Could you take a look and let me know if I am expecting a rather large common black snake, or something a little more poisonous(cottonmouth, copperhead, rattlesnake) The skin, before it broke was about 4'10" in length, head skin still in tact. Of course while moving it, it broke :). Thanks for your help, just wanna be sure if I am needing a snake trap or trapping person, or just try to be sure I have no food sources in or near the house.(like mice) For what its worth I'm located in Central San Jose. Thanks, Doniel
