(May 16, 2016) Just remembering that when they were little, my kids would cry when treated at the doctor’s office. In this photo, we have a young Giant garter snake (GGS) being “doctored” by the Conservancy’s biological monitoring team. Wonder how it is taking all this? The snake’s vital statistics will go into the record and this animal’s health will be monitored, hopefully for a long time.
After a tough May 2015, May 2016 is turning out to be an amazing year for GGS counts. Please refer to the video we’ve recently posted of GGS swimming in a marsh pool on one of the Conservancy’s preserves for some action in this regard.
