Blue Racer on Massasauga Trail March 15 2006


 

Blue Racer on Massasauga Trail 1

Weather

It’s a cold sunny day.

Snake Hunter

I’m looking to see if there are any snakes out sunning themselves. There on the eastside of the trail is what I’m looking for…a blue racer that’s 3 foot long. This is a pretty snake…if you like snakes. It’s not moving too much, well not until I get close to take a picture then he coils.

Racer live from 5 to 10 years and lay about 25 eggs in June or July.  Blue racer’s numbers are decreasing likely do to habitat loss and over hunting by humans.
