The venomous rattlesnake.Out of the 11 total different snakes in New Hampshire the Timber rattlesnake is the only venomous snake. Unfortunately they are an endangered species. For anyone that is interested we have a link to the N.H Fish and Game Department’s sight that is trying to help to keep this rattlesnake safe. The Timber rattlesnake is the only venomous snake in N.H This rattlesnake is 36-60 inches long with a blunt, rattle at the end of it’s tale They usually live in rocky, wooded areas that receive an abundant amount of sunlight. They hibernate in the winter in deep rock crevices and they bask on rock ledges. http://www.wildnh.com/Wildlife/W ildlife_PDFs/Timber_rattlesnake_fly er.pdf
This is a photo of a genuine Timber rattlesnake sent to us by Officer Brendon J. Clifford. We contacted the N.H Fish and Game Department and talked to Officer Clifford and he gave us some information as well as these pictures he took to present in our power point. The Genuine N.H Timber Rattlesnake
Timber rattlesnake colony The good news is there is one hidden colony in N.H that is hidden in the southwestern part of the state that only Fish and Game officers Know about. The fact that it is hidden will help protect the snakes and keep them in safe conditions. This arrow is pointing to the area of where the colony of the Timber rattlesnakes might be.
The Northern Water Snake The Northern Water snake averages 30-40 inches long They vary in color The diet of these aquatic snakes consists mainly of various small-sized fish, frogs, toads and salamanders. http://herpcenter.ipfw.edu/index.htm?http://he rpcenter.ipfw.edu/outreach/accounts/reptiles/s nakes/N_water_snake/index.htm&2
