In Reply to: WESTER FOX SNAKE EGGS!!!! posted by Jeremy Pierce on April 10, 2003 at 17:05:50:
:I woke up this morning to 8 BIG beautiful eggs! This is my first year to breed fox snakes. The eggs are enormous! Pic is of male. Take care to all!
Congratulations on your vulpina eggs!
I live in Chatham, Ontario, Canada and I work in little town about 20 minutes from me called Tilbury. Anyway, I drive to work on a twisty country road which follows the sinuous curves of the Thames river. During the spring and summer months I find many beautiful Fox Snakes which have been run over while crossing the road, and even a few which I think have been hit on purpose, judging by the tire tracks. What a horrible shame.
A friend of mine has shown me a couple of spots where we have found several beautiful adult specimens alive and well, and last year I even found a little baby curled up in the middle of the road during a warm fall day. I gently removed him from the road and let him go in the field.
Sorry, I'm rambling... I just love Fox Snakes; they're so great.
As is so well illustrated by the pic accompanying your post, these are gorgeous snakes, and I envy you being able to work with them. Our wildlife laws here do not allow us to do so.
Thanks for sharing the great pic.
