An Interactive Guide to Massachusetts Snakes

This wonderful site is more than a State guide to snakes. Provided by University of Massachusetts Extension, the Website includes a well-written introduction to snake biology, a history of snakes (mythology and reality), information on the conservation of snakes, and even a discussion of snake phobias. The heart of the site is the interactive dichotomous key for snake identification, however, where the user may select between two options to proceed towards a positive identification. The snake key is beautifully illustrated, with color paintings and drawings of fourteen species -- ranging from Black Racer to Worm Snake. Beginning students to seasoned researchers will find this well-conceived, informative resource both useful and pleasing.
