Event Details

There are 46 native species of snakes in Florida and most occur in the central peninsula.  Despite playing important ecological roles as both predators and prey, snakes remain highly misunderstood vertebrates.  Only four venomous species occur in central Florida and these snakes present little danger when left alone.  Herpetologist and environmental educator George L. Heinrich (Heinrich Ecological Services) will introduce the diversity of snakes that live in this region, as well as cover identification techniques, natural history, conservation status, and snake safety.  A selection of LIVE snakes will be available for viewing and handling if participants choose to do so.  This program is recommended for all ages.
