IDENTIFICATION

KEY

 

This Key will primarily assist in the identification of a snake that has been killed. It may also allow a limited ability to identify a snake sighted or photographed. It is not complete at present, being focused on the south-west of the state, but will be added to over time until it is a complete record of all WA species, or at least species-groups. If you have some idea of the snake’s identity you can go to the species listed below to verify.
