Snakes of the United States Project Noah Mission – December 28, 2012 Update

This week at Project Noah, I am pleased to report that the Snakes of the United States – Center for Snake Conservation (CSC) mission has had an addition of 21 new spottings bringing the total number of snake spottings to 1,230. I am also pleased to report we added 14 new members to the mission, bringing the total to 510 users.

If you are a Project Noah member and wish to help us improve the database by recruiting new members and spottings to the CSC mission, please email Lisa Powers: froghavenfarm@hotmail.com

The Center for Snake Conservation needs your help to collect distributional data for all wild snakes in the United States. Please record all snakes including any snakes found dead on a road or elsewhere. Please include additional information about your spotting that can help us understand a bit more about the snake. As we collect spottings, we can increase our knowledge about snakes and help educate others that view our photos. Snakes are often unnecessarily feared and we can help change the human perception through our postings on Project Noah. http://www.projecthoah.org

Project Noah Snake Spotting of the Week

This prairie rattlesnake (aka western rattlesnake) is being responsibly handled by scientists to collect data about the snake. The snake has been safely restrained inside a tube specially designed for such purpose. Rarely, do professionals directly handle venomous snakes. When it is necessary to interact with venomous species, snake hooks, tongs and tubes are used.

Project Noah has posted several snake related blogs. Have you read, “Snakes in Mythology, Religion and Folklore – Aaron Goodwin”
