|Snakes Search Page
|Our databases cover all species of venomous snakes in the families Elapidae, Viperidae and Lamprophiidae (Sub-family Atractaspidinae) and selected species of Non-Front-Fanged-Colubroid (NFFC) snakes and Constrictor snakes ( PLEASE READ An important note on the use in this website of the terms, “venom” and “venomous” for non-front-fanged colubroid snakes). We use the
most recent taxonomy available to us, therefore if you use an old scientific
name you may not find the species you are looking for. For searches based on
geographic area, always use Country first before selecting Region. Region works
only as an OR selection in our databases. For example, if a snake is found only
in Australia, it will appear in the Region "Australia", but if it also occurs
in New Guinea, it will only appear in the Region "Australia + New Guinea + Indonesia".
Therefore if you search for all Australian venomous snakes using only Country
"Australia", you will get a complete list. If you search on Region "Australia" instead,
the list will be incomplete, because it will return only those species found
exclusively in Australia.
