Virginia is home to 28 species of frogs and toads.
Approximately 40% of our snake identification requests were harmless, juvenile eastern ratsnakes. Is this the snake you observed? Not the snake you observed? Then by all means contact us.
To improve the identification process, provide the following when possible:
Locality (county / town, address is ideal)
Place of encounter: Yard, house, pond, woods, etc.
Disposition of animal: Observed, released, killed, etc.
If you are a VHS member (not required)
