The snakes listed in this project are snakes that are indigenous or live in the state of Mississippi. Almost all of the snakes are common to the rest of the southeastern United States. Photography is still underway for many of the snakes, and photos will be updated as they are taken.
There are two paths available to identify Mississippi snakes; by name, or feature. On the next page are two windows that will direct you into these paths. If you choose to change the path you are on, simply click one of the two buttons at the top of the page to go to the appropriate path.The snake name option will display a list of the common and scientific names of the snakes in this project. Clicking on any of the names will take you to the information page on that particular snakes. You will then be able to print the information page via a print button at the bottom of the page. (Note: The browser cannot print any of the project pages; only the information page will print.)
The feature button will take you on a step by step identification process until you reach the information page for the snake you have chosen. Each page will have several options to choose from, and when a choice is made, new options will appear until the snake is identified.
