New Pond Farm is home to several species of wild snakes, if you look closely you might see them while you are out on a walk. To get a closeup look at a few non-poisons specimens, stop by the Wildlife Room in the Program Building.
These beautiful Non-poisonous snakes are often mistaken for the poisonous Coral Snake. Their patterning is reversed, just remember "Red touches yellow, kill a fellow, red touches black. okay Jack" to tell the difference.
In May 2013, Amélie joined our menagerie. She is now living in the Wildlife Room, on your next visit, stop in and say “HI”- you might need to look closely, she blends in with the bedding. To read more about Amélie, please click here.
