Welcome, Baby Ratsnake!

Exciting news, from Murphys Point!

“Mica” the Visitor Centre Ratsnake and “Lady Gray,” the female ratsnake who spends her summers at Charleston Lake Provincial Park, are parents! By association, Murphys Point staff are the guardians of little Baby Snake (better name to come…perhaps a new fundraising campaign?).

At four weeks old, the new addition to our interpretive family is beautifully patterned, fiesty and great at hiding under its water dish. We thank the folks at Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo in Ottawa, who incubated the snake eggs and took great care of Baby in its first weeks of life!

Stay tuned for more baby news!
