Snake Tracks Field Update for 4/12/13

14 Apr

Spring update for the Earthshine Snake Tracks Timber Rattlesnake conservation project.

Today I found Utsanati remaining in hibernation and Zoe was ~160 feet Southeast of her den.  She was outstretched on the leaf litter basking in the morning sun and although I walked to within ~4 feet of her she never rattled.

Take a look at the video footage from today below:

For more information on the Snake Tracks project and Earthshine Nature Programs please visit us at

It is our goal at ENP to promote wildlife conservation through exciting hands-on education, out-reach programs and online with our nature videos.  I am not paid to operate ENP or to conduct wildlife conservation activities.  ENP is a 100% volunteer operated project designed to educate you about these greatly misunderstood and amazing animals and hopefully, to impart to you their beauty, uniqueness and intrinsic value to a healthy Earth and healthy humans.

If you would like to help support 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 Earthshine Discovery Center and all of you who have helped to make Earthshine Nature Programs happen! Without all of you our wildlife conservation and education mission would not be possible.

Visit the Earthshine Discovery Center to learn how you and your family, school, scout, corporate or camp group, can visit us and have a wonderful fun and educational retreat!

    Hi Steve, Nice video, looks like the den site worked well. I found one TR and one CH on Saturday at a den site above Pink Beds. Let me know if you want company when you are out hunting, although I wouldn’t be interested in radio-tracking again since I have seen that. Fred

      Hello Fred! Good to hear from you. Sounds like you have been having a good time in the woods. I will be sure to let you know the next time I go into the field outside of Earthshine:-)
