If you are like me you are more than ready for the snakes to be out and about. Things are really picking up here in Tennessee and I am finding some of the larger species in addition to the small woodland species! I am looking forward to seeing all of the new finds that everyone has to share on Project Noah. Please remember to include as much information about the species as you can since we are using this as a chance to educate people. On another website post, I saw someone refer to a Dekay’s Brownsnake (Storeria dekayi) as being very aggressive! Very scared is more like it! Please consider the language you use to portray our favorite animals…try to look at it from the snakes point of view!

This week at Project Noah, the Snakes of the United States – Center for Snake Conservation (CSC) mission has had an addition of 109 new spottings bringing the total number of snake spottings to 1,614. We added 35 new members to the mission, bringing the total to 620 users.  Thank you to everyone who has joined, shared the site and is contributing to this important mission!

The Project Noah: CSC-Snakes of the United States Mission Spotting of the week is this lovely Dusky Pygmy Rattlesnake by JeffreyDuby.  The Dusky  is a small snake averaging 12-24 inches (30-61 cm) but is thick for its size. It is often found in lowland pine flatwoods, prairies and wetlands.
