A Rough Earth Snake was uncovered by Butterfly House Director Uli Hartmond as he worked on the plantings outside of the Conservatory on the 16th of February. This was the first live snake of the season. A dead Rough Earth Snake was spotted by Ranger Lew a few weeks earlier in Catch the Wind.
In other herp news, I’ve heard Spring Peepers calling both last week and this week. Chorus frogs can’t be far behind.
