Snakes in Alaska

Are there any snakes in Alaska

Officially Alaska is one of the two states, alongside Hawaii, recognized as a no-snake state of the United States. The extremely freezing temperatures and the snow-covered grounds make Alaska a not so preferable habitat for snakes that mostly prefer warmer regions. Yet, over the years, there have been records of the common garter snake sightings near the hot springs of Alaska. Known for its mild venom, the common garter snake barely comes in contact with humans, and hence aren’t harmful.
