Topics: Snakes

During Vermont’s long, cold winters there’s no chance of encountering a snake. But they're here, hidden below the frostline until spring arrives. Vermont is home to eleven native snake species, including the only rattlesnake to call the Northeast home, the eastern timber rattlesnake. But these reclusive animals are at the northern end of their range and only a small population exists after years of human persecution and habitat loss. Today concerned conservationists are working hard to ensure Vermont's only venomous snake remains part of our natural heritage.
