Snake ID

Do you Know These Snakes?

The Snake ID Challenge (Phase 2)

A joint initiative byUniversity of Zurich / ETH Zurich

Help us Identifying Species of Snakes.

Fall is here! You can take advantage of the cooler weather to test and refine your identification skills with the second phase of the SnakeID challenge. We’ll show you more than 2000 photos of snakes collected from Twitter, and originally posted from everywhere in the world! Help us identify as many snakes as possible at the species, genus, or family level.

Now With Unclassified Images

In Phase 1 of the Snake Id Challenge (March 2019) we showed you images of snakes already classified by experts, and studied the competence (and speed) of the crowd in matching the expert identification. This time, we are showing you unclassified images, and we need your help to discover which species are in the images in order to create a new dataset.

Last time we knew the answers, this time we don’t so you are the expert!
