Observations of eastern diamondback rattlesnakes solicited

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service was recently petitioned to list the eastern diamondback rattlesnake, historically found in the lower Coastal Plain from North Carolina to Louisiana, as a threatened or endangered species. As the Service reviews the status of the eastern diamondback, NCASI is soliciting information about observations of the snake to improve understanding of its distribution and habitat associations. If you encounter an eastern diamondback rattlesnake, we would greatly appreciate you completing a short online survey at http://www.ncasi.org/snakesurvey.aspx. This webpage also contains links to photos and other information that will help survey respondents distinguish eastern diamondbacks from the timber rattlesnake.

NCASI will remove any information that would identify individual respondents and/or landowners, as well as precise locations, before providing results to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
