To identify a snake hole, look for openings in the ground that are newly visible. Snakes don't construct a dwelling, they inhabit an abandoned rodent's burrow or a naturally-occurring hole. When the snake enters a rodent's former dwelling, it removes the obstructions that previously hid the entrance for security.
