Many of California's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving California's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Los Angeles county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Lakewood animal control for wildlife issues.

Lakewood Wildlife Removal Tip: How to identify a shed snake skin

Almost all people are afraid of snakes as they thrive in farms and gardens. They also hunt everything from moles to midges. But, they are amazing because of their skin which is purposeful and streamlined. Their hearts usually consist of a single chamber while their lungs only have one lobe. They smell using their tongue and they gather particles from the soil and air.

The impressive thing about them is that they take good care of their grooming in just one move. They shed their outer skin that cleanses them off parasites. It looks like they wriggle their dirty and old sock. If you will not clean up the garden and cut down the plants, you will expectedly see these natural wonders such as mantis cocoons, wasp nests and more.

More Things to Learn About a Shed Snakeskin

A shed is actually an outer skin layer that is released by a snake. This takes place during the process of shedding known as ecydysis. A snake shed its skin many times in a year. This will be an effective way to clean house and outgrow its clothing.

Health, snake, age and other factors will help determine the times that a snake sheds. You may also count it considering years. The length of the body of the snake sloughs off. You will also discover that the shed is fragile and dry when discovered. But, this is not the case at all times. The snake emits a lymphatic fluid that can moisten its skin. And right after that, it releases its skin.

Snakes Do not Shed in The Place Where It Stays

One more thing to take note about a snake skin is that it does not shed in the place where it stays all the time. It only needs something that can be rubbed against its body. This way, it will be able to pull its skin off.

Ways to Consider in Mind When Identifying a Shed Snake Skin

There are many ways for you to identify a shed snake skin. You can look through the effective field guides. They will help you take a closer look at the descriptions and drawings of scales. You will also be able to compare them to a shed skin.

You will be able to identify the characteristics between a non-venomous snake and pit viper if the anal plate is divided. This is the very last scale found at cloaca's base. This is the opening wherein giving birth, defecating and mating take place.

The shape of the head will also be a recognizable difference between a non-venomous and venomous snake. If its head is arrow-shaped and intact, it might mean to say that a venomous snake is around. And of course, a shed snakeskin will be a lot bigger than the snake that carries it.


Now, you have finally learned how to identify a shed snake skin! You will now be able to discover effective solutions to remove them!
