Yesterday (3/21/12) brought out the first water snakes of the season here at the Museum, three of them!
If the snake above doesn’t look familiar to you perhaps this will refresh your memory.
And lastly, garter snakes have been active all winter, as discussed in a previous post, so it’s no surprise that one was seen in Catch the Wind on Tuesday March 20 by Bungee Operator/Snake Wrangler Ryne. The snake was patrolling the U-shaped pond next to Take Off (the Bunge) when Ryne spotted it among the river rocks that surround the pond.
At my prompting, Ryne caught the snake and was only too happy to show it off to those of us, staff and visitors, standing around him.
And the snake…
Good job Ryne!
