A good number of snake species in the Live Oak, Universal City, Leon Valley, Selma, New Braunfels, Canyon Lake, Schertz, Timberwood Park, Boerne, Cibolo, Stone Oak, Hollywood Park, Shavano Park, Fredericksburg, Spring Branch, Fair Oaks & Alamo Heights area are not venomous, but it's wise to avoid interacting with any snake just in case. San Antonio has four common venomous snakes, including the copperhead, rattlesnake, cottonmouth, and coral snake. Because snakes cannot regulate their own body temperature and rely on the sun to do it for them, they are usually found in warm areas. Many snakes do not like to be out in the open, so they're found curled up under rocks in San Antonio yards and under porches. So whether you're facing a den of snakes on your San Antonio property or just notice one snake, Wildlife X Team® San Antonio can help—call 830.253.2810 today!

Keep Snakes Away from your San Antonio home!

Copperhead Snake in San Antonio TXJust seeing a snake is enough for many San Antonio residents to call us, but some prefer DIY removal—which we do not recommend. This can be extremely dangerous and you, your family, and pets are all in danger of being bitten, and even if not venomous, snake bites can be painful. To get snakes removed, call our office! 

Common places to find snakes:

  • Curling up in warm spots on patios or porches, to regulate their body heat
  • Hiding beneath overgrown shrubbery

Types of Venomous Snakes in San Antonio

  • Copperhead (pictured) — Adult copperheads can grow up to 36 inches long, and they're characterized by their orange and brown pattern.
  • Rattlesnake—There are upwards of three dozen species of rattlesnakes, and some have been known to grow up to 8 feet in length (diamondback rattlesnake). They're easily characterized by their rattle, used to warn approaching threats.
  • Cottonmouth—Also known as water moccasins, a fully grown cottonmouth snake can reach up to four feet in length. Cottonmouths have large, triangular heads and are brow/black in color.
  • Coral snake—With unique black and red stripes, coral snakes are thin and relatively small, only reaching up to 20 inches.

If you encounter any of these types of snakes, do not approach it and call 830.253.2810 immediately.

Project: Knowledgeable, Friendly & Great Follow-Up
We recently bought a home and have not been able to move in due to a horrible odor inside and under the home. We called Wildlife XTeam and Adam came as scheduled and removed a dead skunk from the crawl space of the home. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, took time to deodorizer the contaminated site and walked around the home and informed my husband on things we can do to prevent this from happening again and how we can keep other critters and bugs and spiders from coming onto our property and house. He also took the the time to call us the following day to see if our issue had been resolved. I highly recommend them should someone need an animal removed dead or alive.
