Sharp-tailed Snake Monitors, please check your Artificial Cover Objects (shingles) for snakes! Sharp-tailed Snakes are most active during the spring and fall, so now is the best chance you have of finding these elusive critters. If you do find a snake, try to take a picture, and let us know as soon as possible. Young Garter Snakes are often confused with Sharp-tailed Snakes. Check our Sharp-tailed Snake Stewardship page for more information about their life-history and identification.
Finally, if you live in remnant Garry oak meadow or on a steep slope with wildflowers and think you may have Sharp-tailed Snakes on your property, contact us about becoming a Sharp-tailed Snake monitor.
