The Search for the South Florida Rainbow Snake
In the first-ever formal survey for the South Florida rainbow snake — which had recently been declared extinct — in 2012 staff from the Center for Biological Diversity, Center for Snake Conservation, and state and federal agencies went on a five-day expedition to see if it still survived. We didn't find the beautiful reptile that time, but we did find perfect habitat for it in Florida's Fisheating Creek, and we got a tantalizing report of a recent, nearby sighting. As the search goes on, watch this vid.
