“Little Guy” is safe for a while,
as Idaho’s native amphibians and reptiles remain “protected species” for the immediate future… There are some challenges ahead though and he hopes for continued support. He will keep his friends informed during the next few months about the status of amphibians and reptiles in Idaho. “Little Guy” is a “Great Basin (western) rattlesnake (Crotalus oreganus lutosus).

“Little Guy” says, “Please keep me safe!”
He’s concerned about a proposal in the Idaho Legislature to remove “protected” status for Idaho’s native amphibians and reptiles. Apparently some legislators object to rattlesnakes being “protected.” Everyone who cares about the conservation of Idaho’s wildlife should monitor this issue closely!

A New Bearded Dragon
“Elizabeth” needed a new home and now she’s found one as a member of the “EcoSnake Team!” She’s had excellent care and is very healthy and friendly. We estimate she’s about three years old. Hopefully she’ll adjust soon to her new home. Inland bearded dragon (Pogona vitticeps). They are native to Australia and are very gentle and responsive. Photo by Frank
