Scott and I will be presenting our “Rattlesnake Awareness and Outdoor Safety” program this Saturday, November 12, 2011 at 1:00 pm at the Idaho Fish and Game MK Nature Center in Boise. If you live in the Treasure Valley area and can’t make it to the BSU game, this is a great alternative!

“James” says “thanks”

“James” says “thanks”
to all his friends for helping to fix his cooling system. He especially appreciates the caring comments and donations which enabled the heat pump to be fixed but left some remaining expenses. He’s lucky though to have the system back up and running thanks to everyone. Note from Frank - the response to these pictures was never anticipated and is truly overwhelming. Thanks - we hope to be able to continue to help amphibians and reptiles and all wildlife. PS, if anyone wants to contribute to the remaining expenses, it can be done through pay pal to Thanks again Photo by Frank

Hopefully not the end for “James”


Hopefully not the end for “James”, originally uploaded by EcoSnake.

Hopefully not the end for “James”
and all my animals because the heat pump died this afternoon in my house and I have no way to afford to repair it. Sadly, if “James” and many other snakes lare exposed to temperatures over 90 degrees (F), they will die. This is very real. I’ve never encountered anything like this before…I’m broke and this heat/cooling problem keeps me from providing adequate care for my animals…

Note: If you want to donate to the EcoSnake heat pump project, do not use the donation button on the website. You can donate directly to the EcoSnake pay pal account (Frank Lundburg) at

Any amount/help is appreciated. Thanks, Frank and the EcoSnake team.

Garren was instrumental in helping create EcoSnake. He loved nature and wildlife and was a caring, loving and honest and decent friend and colleague. He died suddenly three years ago today. Self portrait taken October 8, 2007, by Garren.
