Snakes Alive, a new temporary exhibit is open at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum.
The exhibit features all nine species of snakes naturally found in the province.
Ray Poulin, Curator of Vertebrate Zoology with the Museum says most people don’t know about how many different snakes call the province home. “Only second to Ontario in the diversity of snakes in our province. We have three different species of garter snakes. So it’s just that little bit of variety that’s out there that’s hard to appreciate when you see the animal shooting through the grass.”
The exhibit features Canada’s largest and smallest snakes and is open daily from 9:30 Am to 5 PM.
