List of snakes

This is a list of snakes by family, subfamily and genus, mostly according to the continuing work of Dr. Roy W. McDiarmid, available through ITIS. The one exception is the family Colubridae, due to the fact that ITIS information for it is currently incomplete. In this case, taxonomic data from the New Reptile Database was used instead, combined with some information for authorities, years and common names from ITIS.
