Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission News
Florida Fish and Wildlife Researchers are primarily trying to detect southern hognose snakes using drift fence arrays, and the team selected two sites without any records and two sites with recent records.
No southern hognose snakes were found during the Florida Fish and Wildlife’s 2014 upland snake survey, so finding one this year was a cause for celebration.
This survey will help determine the current distribution and status for upland snake species that have been petitioned for federal listing.
These species include the Florida pine snake, southern hognose snake and eastern diamondback rattlesnake.
