Women and Snakes – February 6, 2013

Shelly Cox – Missouri

Shelly is an educator at the Missouri Department of Conservation where she reaches out to children and adults of all ages with live animal presentations including snakes. In addition to her typical outreach programs she also hosts an annual event called the “Herp-O-Rama” each summer which is dedicated to educating people about reptiles and amphibians. Shelly is also a member of the Center for Snake Conservation and manages and generates content for our Facebook page.  Shelly has recently begun her own study of Timber Rattlesnakes on her farm in Missouri using mark and recapture techniques.  This study is just in its beginning but has already yielded exciting finds such as the neonate rattlesnake below.  Shelly is pictured with one of her star students below with a ratsnake and by herself with a fox snake.
