Boca Raton Snake Control & Removal

Boca Raton Snakes: There are about 25 species of snake in the Boca Raton area, though only about ten of them are common. There are four types of poisonous snake in the area, as discussed below. Most snakes are actually harmless. We remove many snakes each month, from areas such as yards, inside lenais, pools, and even inside homes and attics. The most common snake that we deal with is the Florida Black Racer. It's a thin, fast, black snake with a white belly. We also commonly deal with Yellow Rat Snakes, Corn Snakes, Banded Water Snakes, Garter Snakes, and Ringneck Snakes. Most of these snakes are harmless. However, if you have a fear of snakes, or have one inside the home and want it out, we can help you. We offer emergency snake removal at any hour, and we also perform snake trapping and prevention services. If it slithers, we can get rid of it!   

Boca Raton's Venomous Snakes: There are four species of venomous snake in the Boca area. They are not very common, but they are there, so please be careful around snakes, and exercise caution.

  • COTTONMOUTH - also known as the Water Moccasin, it's an aquatic snake. It's thick and black as an adult, though the young have brown and tan bands. It's a member of the pit viper family, and it has a horrible and possibly fatal bite. This is probably the most common of Boca Raton's poisonous snakes.
  • PYGMY RATTLESNAKE - this is a small snake, often not much more than a foot or a foot and a half. It's not deadly, but it's very aggressive, and the venom will hurt terribly and cause heavy and permanent tissue damage. This snake can be hard to see or identify, and if you're bit, it may be worst pain of your life.
  • EASTERN CORAL SNAKE - pictured above. Red touch yellow, kills a fellow. This snake has incredibly potent neurotoxic venom, but the snake is actually not very aggressive, and it can't inject venom as quickly. Still, don't touch it!
  • EASTERN DIAMONDBACK RATTLESNAKE - this is the deadly one. An adult can easily kill a person, no matter how fast that person is rushed to the hospital and treated with antivenin. If you see a large rattlesnake with diamonds on its back, stay away!

One of our customer cases:

I know you come across pythons, boas and other exotic reptiles, and if you need us, we're here (in Boca Raton). At the same time, I would like to be able to refer people to your services--I got a call last week about a rattlesnake in someone's yard, Boca Raton Animal Control had referred us, but we don't deal with hot snakes. Personally, I have been involved with taking care of reptiles for the last 26 years, and recently established the Reptile Rescue of Florida, now located in Boca. We are a non-profit corporation devoted to saving the lives of reptiles of all sorts, and placing them in homes where they will be loved, cared for and properly maintained. We have a Reptiles of Concern license from the FWC, so we are also able to take in the infamous problem animals such as Burmese and Reticulated pythons, where they will be securely caged, implanted with PID chips, and cared for until we can locate an ROC licensed adopter for them. We take in snakes, lizards, turtles, frogs and toads—pretty much every type of reptile with the exception of poisonous snakes, as I mentioned, as we do not have the permits to deal with those type of snakes at this point. We are currently working with Brevard County Animal Control to rescue any reptiles they take in, and wish to extend the same offer to your organization. We will rescue any reptiles that you take in, and take care of them until we place them with appropriate adopters. We are also working with and have a web presence where we will present animals that are available for adoption. We have a strict adoption policy, requiring potential adopters to be knowledgeable and equipped to adequately care for the animal they wish to adopt. We do not charge for adopted animals, though we do ask for an appropriate adoption donation fee to help assist with feeding, habitat and vet care for our animals, much like you do for the animals you adopt out. Our facility is located in Brevard County and you can reach us by phone or email, both listed above. Someone is usually available for animal drop off, and you are welcome to verify our licenses and non-profit incorporation documents as well as animal husbandry records, or to inspect our animals. We would also be glad to pick up any pythons, boas, etc. that you would like us to take in so we can find a good home for them. Our reptile veterinarian is at of the Animal Veterinary Hospital of Boca Raton, located on West Oak Ridge Road. If you wish to see it, we have a reference letter from him which states that he provides veterinary services for our rescue service. We look forward to hearing from you and working with you in the future. Scott
