Quick Photo Reference: Snakes of Vermont

Identifying animals is often easier with photo references. Photos can help you limit possible identifications to just one or two likely species.

Click or tap a tab below to see reference photos for each group of snakes. The groups are based on visual similarities between animals, and are not a biological classification.

(Please note: preview images may not show the key identifying feature. Click or tap to see complete image. If you only see one tab—a known though uncommon bug—please reload the page.)
