The Police Department receives several calls a year concerning snakes and snake identification. The Powerpoint presentation below is an excellent source for information regarding venomous snakes you can possibly encounter in Florida. The University of Florida created a guide of many species of non-venomous and venomous snakes that are native to our state. CAUTION: IF YOU SEE A SNAKE, CALL THE POLICE CELL PHONE AT 262-7548. IT IS BEST TO KEEP CHILDREN AND PETS AWAY; DO NOT APPROACH A SNAKE FOR SAFETY'S SAKE!
