If the hide is brought to a tanner, along with 15 coins, it can be tanned into snakeskin. Tanners can be found in Al Kharid, the Ranging Guild, Varrock, Taverley, Canifis and the Crafting Guild. Members can then craft the snakeskins into snakeskin armour.
The hide also is the tertiary ingredient for Spirit cobra pouches which requires level 63 Summoning. Between 63 and 75, this is one of the highest experience pouches that can be produced from crimson charms.
A good place to collect snake hides is near the entrance of the Trouble Brewing minigame on the eastern part of Mos Le'Harmless. There are three poisonous snakes reasonably close together and near the deposit box for the minigame. Bring a Spirit terrorbird for its special ability to renew run energy and antipoison or Prayer book and a Holy symbol, or an anti poison totem from Dungeoneering against the snake's bite. You could also bring a Spirit wolf, using Howl scrolls to avoid attack by Jungle horrors in the single-way combat zone.
Swamp snake hides can also be obtained by using a knife on dead Swamp snakes from the Temple Trekking and Burgh de Rott Ramble minigames. However, these hides are slightly different in colour, and stack in the bank as separate items. Once tanned however, there is no difference between the two.
