Animal of the day – 6/7/2011 – The Lake Erie Water Snake

Lake Erie Water Snake

The animal of the day is the Lake Erie Water Snake. (Did you know: These endangered snakes were once hunted by people who simply wanted to kill them because they were snakes. Once their population got super low, the whole eco-system was thrown into disarray, as many of the fish that this snake eats started reproducing like crazy!

They are now protected by Ohio law, and are slowly making a comeback! (Finally, the state of Ohio does something worthwhile! GO BLUE!)
