TOLEDO BLADE (Michigan) 07 April 03 Michigan seeks reports of rattlesnake sightings
Lansing: The Michigan Department of Natural Re|sources asks residents to report all eastern massasauga rattlesnake observations in Michigan as part of a multi-state effort in cooperation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The adult massasauga rattlesnake is thick-bodied and can be 18 to 30 inches long. They are brown to grayish color with large brown blotches on their back and smaller, lighter brown patches on their sides.
This snake population has been declining because of habitat loss and human harassment.
“Michigan appears to be the remaining stronghold for this snake’s population,” said Raymond Rustem, DNR Natural Heritage Unit Supervisor.
The DNR is interested in any massasauga sightings from now throughout the summer. A report form is available on the DNR Web site, www.michi|gan.gov/dnr, under “wildlife observations.”
