Full FAQ Details

Are there any poisonous snakes in Sudbury?


No. Although most snakes in our area have tiny needle-like teeth and will bite if handled, none are poisonous. Some people erroneously believe that the black snakes they see basking around ponds and streams in the summer time are “water moccasins.” They are merely Northern Water Snakes.
