Buzztails and Bullsnakes: Debunking the Myths of Colorado's Charismatic Mega-Sakes
Speaker: Joseph Ehrenberger, MS, Senior Ecologist, Matrix Design Group, Inc.
Snakes have been misunderstood and maligned dating back to their first human encounter, possibly even impacting ancient primates evolutionarily. Fear of snakes, similarly with bats, and spiders, has spun off many myths and folklores that still are present today. This presentation will provide access to real information about the biology of the familiar and widely distributed rattlesnake and bullsnake, while introducing and explaining the myths about these snakes and snakes overall. For many people, all it takes is a better understanding of how snakes work to reduce ingrained fear and encourage peaceful coexistence with them, knowing that snakes have a supportive role in our natural ecosystems.
