An Upper Thames River Conservation Authority biologist wants to know one thing.
Have you seen this snake?
Scott Gillingwater is looking for the Eastern Hog-nosed Snake.
The harmless creature is protected under provincial and federal law, but is sometimes killed because it mimics venomous species.
You can find pictures of the Eastern Hog-nosed Snake at this website and a video of it here.
If you see one you’re asked to get in touch with Scott Gillingwater by emailing [email protected] or calling 519-451-2800 ext 236.
