How to Identify a Shed Snake Skin

Whatever the wild Fort Worth animal any of us get entered to home, we need to get it out in short span of time. This is not something to worry about. There are lots of ways that can help us getting this done in proper way. Many people are concerned on how they can be aware of the shed snake skin and the type of the Texas snake that shed it.

For many people who are non- herpetologist, they may have difficult in identifying the complete Fort Worth snake when they see and it is even harder to them when they have to identify the shed of the snake. The method of identifying the snake is based on the scale pattern since every snake has its own pattern when it comes to the scales especially at its head and it is like the fingerprints for the species of the snake. There are other factors especially the diameter and the size that have to be taken into account and it may help with identification. Sometime, it can be hard to make a difference between a certain type of Texas snake to another and it gets much easier when the person has the entire snake shed. The easiest way to identify the snake is to check the sub-caudal scales which are the snake that are found under its tail. The Colubrids have the double row of scales under its tail and the vipers have just a single row. The Fort Worth coral snakes that are found in Elapidae family and they have double row also under a tail. When you are aware of the family of the snake, you may also learn how to look for even more characteristics that will narrow down the type of the Texas snake you have. You should check the texture of the skin if it is keeled or smooth by checking on the dorsal scales. You may also check the condition of the anal plate or the anal scale if they are divide or single. The keeled dorsal scale may have a ride that run in its center while the smooth dorsal scales may have no ridge.

When you use all the characteristics together, you will have to divide everything in single or smooth, single or keeled, divided or smooth or divided and keeled. After deciding, you will then need to look for the size, the shape and the number of the head scales that can help to distinguish the species but this may not be easier since most shades do not include the heads.
