JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Are snake sightings up?  

Some 3 On Your Side viewers seem to think so! We've received several photos from concerned viewers.

Marsha Thompson went to the Museum of Natural Science today for some answers.

We learned there are 55 species of snakes in Mississippi. And more than likely, the snakes being spotted on the move aren't all that dangerous. 

But what is causing the appearance of more snakes? Is it excessive rainfall or is it just this time of year?

Watch WLBT at 6 pm to find out.
