Snakes alive! Otowi Station, Snake Conservation and the Bradbury Science

Museum are collaborating for a presentation and demonstration at 1:30 p.m.

Wednesday in the breezeway between Otowi Station and the Bradbury Science

Museum. Visitors can see all kinds of beautiful snakes, learn the part they

play in our environment, and get an exclusive deal on a Snake Sack, which

contains a guidebook, a notebook for recording the kinds of snakes they

observe, a pencil and a museum-quality replica of a snake.

The Bradbury Science Museum will feature videos about snakes from 10 a.m.-5

p.m. and have some special exhibits about snakes.

Snakes are often hated and feared. Many are even killed for no clear reason.

But there are definitely reasons to keep snakes around your home or garden.

They can keep in check pests like rats and mice, which are vectors for such

diseases as Hantavirus and the plague. And some species that are harmless to

people prey on venomous snakes, reducing the chance of a deadly encounter.

A worker at a Florida dog kennel learned the hard way about the importance

of snakes. He noticed dozens of snakes living in the rafters and crevices,

and decided the reptiles had to go. Working systematically, he killed them

until none were left.
