New sharp-tailed snake site found in Canada


This is a sharp-tailed snake video.

From Gulf Islands Online in Canada:

A new population of the endangered sharp-tailed snake recently discovered in the Long Harbour area is exciting island residents and Salt Spring Island Conservancy members.

The snake, which is small (20.5 to 45.5 cm in length) and has a thorn-like scute at the tip of the tail, is only found in Victoria and on Salt Spring and Pender islands.

Exact population numbers are unavailable.

Prior to the discovery of the snake in the Long Harbour area, sharp-tailed snakes were found only west of St. Mary Lake.

The new location is more than five kilometres away from previous locations.
