Snake Care 101- 1 hr
Snakes are some of the most misunderstood animals. It is amazing and inspiring to witness interest and caring increase for these unique species. Woodlands Wildlife Refuge is permitted to care for snakes, including venomous, and we have seen a major increase in snake rehabilitation needs since 2013. There are 23 species of snakes in New Jersey including two venomous species. Not all reptiles are the same. Snakes have specific needs per species, age, and injury when it comes to housing, nutrition, lighting, temperature control, and more. This session covers basic care and housing for common snake species, common intake reasons, and interesting cases.
