About Snake Buddies



We (Shaun Vought, Gavin Beck and Jamison Hensley) have been great friends and “snake buddies” since the day we met. We are passionate about field-herpetology and spreading awareness of our creepy-crawly friends. We love going out and observing snakes and other wildlife in their natural surroundings and sharing our experiences with others. By banding together, we have found a way to provide our audience with informative, interesting, and educational content about snakes.

At SnakeBuddies.net, you can expect to read well-written and original articles, learn new information about snakes, and see amazing photography and custom graphics. Our primary goal is to educate others about the animals we find fascinating and to help inspire others to conserve these critters.

Thanks for visiting our site! Feel free to post comments and questions or make suggestions regarding topics you would like us to cover. We look forward to getting to know you and wish you the best in your herping endeavors.

  1. Thanks, Jamison, for adding Ugly Overload to your sidebar. I’ve done the same with Snakebuddies’ Blog. Great site!

  2. I’d like to send you a photo. How do I do it?

    Nice blog on Wag’s Jamison…They are one of my favorite pit vipers. Not a good snakes for beginners or even intermediate keepers because they are difficult to care for.

    I live in northern Utah and have been trying to get out and find some reptiles around here but have been looking for someone to go out with. It would be great if you could let me know if you ever have an event!


    • Schyler,

      Hey there. Where is Northern Utah are you? Our snake season in Utah is winding down quickly for the year, as Fall is coming quick. Have you been to the Reptile Expo at the Utah State Fairgrounds in Salt Lake? They always have one in October, and it is a great place to see snakes, and meet some local reptile people. Shoot us an email, if you have any specific questions or needs.

    Yeah I’ll have to look for that expo but right now I’m in Murray. Thanks for getting back to me so fast! I hope to hear more from you guys soon!

    It’s been so cool to see this site evolve and expand to other social media platforms. Entertaining, high quality images and educational. I feel like a movie reviewer. I laughed, I cried. It was better than cats! Seriously guys, great site with pure motives. We need to cross paths out in the field someday sooner than later.

    • LOL, Rob! We really appreciate the kind words, man. This site started as a simple attempt to figure out how websites and search engine optimization work. I hoped it would evolve into something cool, but have been pleasantly surprised by the reach we’ve gotten. We love your content as well, and are equally impressed with your herping “values”. We would love to get together soon, and should put a plan in the works. Maybe Arizona for old time’s sake, but we’re open to suggestions, brother. Let’s do it!

      – Jamison

    I have a quick question and you might know the answer. Will snakes drink lemon infused water? If they will is it necessarily good or bad or is it just neutral? My roommate put some of my lemon water in the terrarium and I’m curious….

    • We are not veterenarians, and cannot provide you with an adequately informative answer. However, we would strongly advise against giving your snake anything but fresh, unflavored water. Lemon juice is very acidic, and could very possibly lead to an illness in your snake.

      Thanks for the question!

    I have a photo of a snake found in my house in Prescott, AZ at about 5000 ft. It doesn’t look like any of your photos. It’s black and red without yellow or cream. I could send you a photo if I had an email address. I’m curious to find out what kind it was. Thanks, Debi
