Many of Georgia'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 Georgia'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 Fulton 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 Buckhead animal control for wildlife issues.

Buckhead Wildlife Removal Tip: WHAT TO DO IF YOU FIND A SHED SNAKE SKIN

Snakes come in all different colors and sizes. They can live in cold or warm weathers, on land or in water and can kill their prey with a single bite.

Not all snakes are venomous, some are constrictors and some kill their prey with just a bite. But what all snakes have in common is that they shed their skins and underneath, a new and shiny skin has already grown. Snakes are covered from head to tail in scales, these scales are what the snake sheds every few months. Before molting, a snakeskin becomes dull and grey, but after the skin is peeled off, starting at the mouth, the new skin underneath is revealed to be smooth, shiny and bright.

A snakeskin is longer than the snake that shed it, because of the way the scales peel apart. This is why some people who find shed snakeskins sometimes imagine that a great big monster is lurking, when in reality the actual snake that shed it may be half that length. Snakes shed their skin for various purposes, when they are young they use it as a growth mechanism, to help them “fit better” in their own skins, and so do it quite often during their first year of life. As they grow older, the shed less, up to two times a year, using the molting process as a way of cleaning their skin from ticks and other parasites.

Finding a snakeskin that has been shed is not as common as you would think. Snakes don’t shed their skins on the go, when the time comes for shedding their skin, they look for a place to hide and curl up inside while the process lasts. This is because, since their eyes are covered by transparent scales that also shed, these scales will turn milky or blue and impair their vision for a few days. Once the old skin is detached from the new one, the snake will start rubbing against stones or tree bark to loosen itself from the old skin. It will then slither out of its hiding place and leave the shed skin behind.

If you happen to casually find a shed snakeskin out in your garden or while hiking, you could take it with you for purely curiosity, appeasing purposes and try to figure out what kind of snake shed it. This may be a fun science project to do with children. If, on the other hand, you find the shed skin in your house, the best thing to do would be to call a professional with experience in removing snakes to come take a look at the skin. Once he has identified the type of snake, he can assess your home to determine if the snake is still there; the snake may have just chosen your house as its shedding place, and left after the process was finished.
