Snakes are common across Georgia, even in urban and suburban areas. As development and population growth continue in Georgia, encounters between humans and snakes will increase.
Georgia is fortunate to have among the highest biodiversity of snakes in the United States with 43 species. Snakes can be found from the mountains of northern Georgia to the barrier islands along the Atlantic Coast. The rich diversity of snake species makes Georgia ideal for observing and learning about snakes.
