New Endangered Massachusetts Snake September 20, 2017

Posted by bsciencecenter in Uncategorized.

Introducing the Science Center’s new black rat snake named “Salem.”  Black rat snakes are Massachusetts largest snake.  They are listed as endangered in MA, but are very common in other areas of the United States.  Salem’s owner had passed away, he was found on the property and then given to a local rescue (Rainforest Reptiles Shows Oasis).  Our elder black rat snake passed away this summer and we are pleased to raise a new one and give it a home teaching students in Burlington.  Pictured below is high school student Sam Nicoloro giving Salem some handling time.
