Snakes in New Hampshire
New Hampshire doesn’t have too many snake species thriving here, around thirteen of them, with just one being venomous. The state’s cold climate is one of the reasons behind the fewer snake population, with only the hardiest and small-sized ones that can bury beneath the soil in winter dwelling here.
The only venomous species here is the timber rattlesnake, which is endangered and protected by the law. Other snakes of New Hampshire requiring conservation include the smooth green snake, eastern hognose snake, ribbon snake, and eastern racer.
