Long snake is the forty-third most common still life in Achim Flammenkamp's census, being less common than cis-boat with tail but more common than trans-mirrored R-bee. This makes it the rarest of the four 7-bit still life in this census, over 200 times rarer than the second rarest, eater 1. The long snake is also the fiftieth most common object on Adam P. Goucher's Catagolue.
