Seen snakes lately? If so, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission wants to hear from you.

FWC is asking the public to report sightings of three species of native upland snakes: the Florida pine snake, southern hognose snake and short-tailed snake (see photos/video).

All three species are found in dry, upland habitats and are often difficult to locate because they spend a lot of time underground.

Check out the video of a pine snake found during a recent upland snake survey.

You can visit FWC's rare snake registry to submit your sightings. Doing so will help biologists evaluate the current status of these three snake species: http://bit.ly/1kdIK4T
