Snake Cover Board – June 6 2007

cover board, originally uploaded by Camp Naturalist.

Some staff from the Michigan Natural Features Inventory are here at camp to put out some snake cover boards to do some research. These boards consist of carpet padding stapled to some thick plastic. Laying these cover boards in our wetland might yield some kirtland’s snakes. These snake spend about 90% of there time underground eating worms and therefore are hard to research. After it rains the snakes come up out of crayfish burrows and station themselves under these boards.

It will be interesting to see if there are some kirtland’s snakes here at camp.
