Snake Tracks Field Update for 9-21-12

25 Sep

Today I found both rattlesnakes deep in the forest far from areas of Human habitation or visitation.  They were only a few hundred feet apart within the power line access way.  Zoe was sunning in the open and Utsanati was moving from the access way into the forest.

Here’s a photo of Zoe basking in the warm last day of summer sun.

Both snakes never rattled or acted aggressive upon my approach–they just slowly moved a few feet away from me and hid when I started collecting my data.  That’s a photo of Utsanati below–can you find him?

take a look at the video from today below:

I am not paid to do this research–this is a volunteer project that I am undertaking to learn all that I can about these amazing animals to further educate you about their beauty, uniqueness and value to a healthy forest ecosystem. If you would like to support the Snake Tracks Timber Rattlesnake wildlife conservation, research, and education project and/or Earthshine Nature Programs please feel free to donate using this link. Receipts available upon request. You may also donate supplies such as animal foods, medical supplies, vitamins and habitat supplies. If you are interested in donating any of these items please contact us for more information on our current needs. THANK YOU to all of you who have donated to ENP!! Without you this important work would not happen.
