Even Snakes Are Staying at Home During the Pandemic

“The South Dakota state park was where the video of the garter snakes was captured. Visitors to the park have seen activity in the region during the past few days. Since I oversee the park, I have been to the hibernaculum. I was fortunate to capture a photo of all the snakes peacefully relaxing close to the den site. I was seated far enough away so that they were not terrified, but close enough for me to feel a bit uneasy as one of them approached my pant leg. Since I was a young child, I have liked nature, therefore I am happy to demonstrate some interesting behavior and perhaps lift people’s spirits in these trying times.
