Description

Found dead and half buried in recently disturbed soil (part of wetland/stream restoration work). It was alongside the remains of a Northern Redbelly Snake. Perhaps they were together in a hibernacula that was dug up? I believe both species are know to utilize ant mounds together.

  • don’t pursue listed species
  • don’t disturb research sites or equipment
  • leave the habitat as you found it
  • do not trespass
  • communicate with land owners and managers
  • don’t disclose sensitive location information
  • be a model for ethical behavior
