Have You Seen a Diamondback?

— Written By

According to Jeff Hall, Conservation Biologist with the NC Wildlife Resources Commission, sightings of Diamondback rattlesnakes are becoming much more rare. If you have seen one – especially if you have a photo, date, and location – he would love to hear from you. He may be reached via email at jeff.hall@ncwildlife.org.

Question about a snake or trying to make an ID? The Herps of NC website is a very good reference:  www.herpsofnc.org. Besides snakes, they also help identify frogs, salamanders, turtles, and lizards.
