Snake Tracks Field Update for 8-3-13

8 Aug

Field update for the Earthshine Nature Programs Snake Tracks Timber rattlesnake conservation project for August 03, 2013.

Zoe remains in the small clearing in the forest where she has been since mid June. I found her today basking out in the open ~5 feet from the edge of the forest. I wonder if she is gravid! She was darker than I have ever seen her–I did not even believe it was her at first until I identified her distinctive markings.  Take a look at the photo below–this is how Zoe looked today!

Safety note: Zoe was only about 40 feet from the parked camper. If you are the owner of this camper, please be careful when walking in the area around dusk and dawn during the summer months.

Utsanati has moved a few hundred feet west of his last location in the berry patch. We found him in a resting coil beside a large fallen tree.

What will they do next?
