Women and Snakes – February 4, 2013

Melissa Amarello – socialsnakes.org

Melissa is Social Snakes.  As a volunteer following her graduate degree working at The Nature Conservancy’s Muleshoe Ranch in Arizona, Melissa has dedicated herself to educating people about the social behavior of snakes.  In particular, she is working closely with Arizona Black Rattlesnakes and their amazing social behaviors not just at the hibernacula but throughout their entire activity season.  She is using time-lapse photography and video to unravel the mysteries of these incredible but misunderstood snakes.  You can learn more about Melissa’s work and her mission “to promote understanding and appreciation of snakes by educating the public about their behavior” at www.socialsnakes.org.
