Where to Find Snakes in Sea of Thieves

Finding a snake requires going to land, and we know where to look, so let us give you a hand.


Snakes are one of the animal variants requested for delivery by the Merchant Alliance in Sea of Thieves. Because there are a lot of islands to explore, you can save a lot of time if you know where to find snakes before you even set out.

Where to Find Snakes

Chances are you’ll come across snakes on your adventures well before you unlock the Merchant Alliance voyages to collect them. Then, when you need to find snakes, they’ll be impossible to locate. To avoid moments like these, make sure you know where to find snakes before you set sail from an outpost. No matter what animal I'm looking to collect, I've always had extremely good luck at Old Faithful Isle, which is unsurprising given its name.

  • Black Sand Atool
  • Booty Island
  • Castaway Isle
  • Crescent Isle
  • Crook’s Hollow
  • Crooked Masts
  • Cutlass Cay
  • Devil's Ridge
  • Discovery Ridge
  • Isle of Last Words
  • Kraken’s Fall
  • Lone Cove
  • Lonely Isle
  • Marauder's Arch
  • Old Faithful Isle
  • Picaroon Palms
  • Sandy Shallows
  • Sunken Grove

Keep in mind that, much like finding pigs and finding chickens, you might arrive at one of these islands and discover there are no snakes to catch. Though specific islands have a better chance of spawning certain animals, it doesn’t always mean they’ll be there when you go looking. A good idea is to search the islands surrounding the outpost that needs the delivery of snakes, that way it’s a quick sail to get it in on time.

Before you go grabbing the snake all willy-nilly, make sure you know how to catch snakes, as they are the only animal that can attack and potentially even kill you. Be sure to swing by our Sea of Thieves guide for more helpful tips!
