  • Snakes belong to the class Reptilia, which includes the
    snakes, lizards, crocodiles, and turtles. They are reptiles characterized by elongated bodies and
    a lack of limbs. Snakes are the most modern of reptiles, first appearing
    in the fossil record during the time of the dinosaurs. It is thought that they evolved from ground dwelling
    or burrowing lizards that exploited the survival advantages
    to be found in a cylindrical, legless body. They gave up external ears and developed clear scales
    to shield their ever-open eyes from dust and damage. They also developed instinctive behaviors that enables them to find and catch prey, hide from predators, reproduce and survive in a great variety of climates. They are distributed through most parts of the world.

Maximum Size 3 ft (1 m); Food - rodents; Litter Size - Up to 20 (usually10 or less); Some subspecies are endangered or threatened!!
The following list provides the common and species names of snakes that are good for the beginning herper. In compiling this list I have taken the following points into consideration;
  • Appearance and Temperament Feeding preferences Snake size v Cage size Breeding potential Conservation status
    The list is split into two groups - 1) Boas and Pythons, 2) Colubrid Snakes.
    NOTE - Suppliers of these snakes are listed for your information as to those advertising on the Web. I have no experience of their services or quality and no endorsement of their business is implied either directly or indirectly (see note below). The WWW Herp Dealers Page is located here. Consult the latest postings on rec.pets.herp if you need contacts or information on purchasing snakes. Also browse through the various herpetology sources available on the WWW via Yahoo Herpetology or check out the advertisements and classifieds in magazines like "Reptile and Amphibian", "Reptiles", "Vivarium" etc. at your local bookshop.

1. Where they live
At one time there were millions of prairie dogs living on the plains and grasslands. These ground squirrels lived in towns made up of underground tunnels or burrows.
Today, Black-tailed prairie dogs are found in one river valley in southern Saskatchewan (the Val Marie area ) and on grasslands throughout most of western United States to New Mexico.
2. A prairie dog home
Prairie dog towns may contain hundreds of prairie dogs. These towns are divided into wards, then into neighborhoods. Each neighborhood is made up of family members - babies, brothers and sisters, females and one or two males.

Here the prairie dog listens for danger before going outside. a tunnel The entrance to the prairie dog's burrow is surrounded by a pile of soil. This mound serves as a lookout and protects the burrow against floods.
The tunnels go down about three meters ( or ten feet ) and can be 15 meters ( 50 feet) from one entrance to another.

Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants: 90-Day Finding for a Petition to List the Preble's Meadow Jumping Mouse as Threatened or Endangered
A petition dated August 9, 1994, was received by the Service from the Biodiversity Legal Foundation on August 16, 1994. The petition requests the Service to list Preble's meadow jumping mouse as endangered or threatened throughout its range and to designate critical habitat within a [[Page 13951]] reasonable amount of time following the listing.
The petitioner submitted information that Preble's meadow jumping mouse populations in Colorado and Wyoming are imperiled by ongoing and increasing urban, industrial, agricultural, ranching, and recreational development; wetland and riparian habitat destruction and/or conversion; and inadequacy or lack of governmental protection for the subspecies and its habitats.
The use of pesticides and herbicides have increased with the urbanization and agricultural development of the Front Range. These chemicals could be contaminating this mouse's food sources and could cause direct poisoning of the species, itself. Finding The Service has reviewed the petition and accompanying documentation on the status of Preble's jumping mouse and information concerning potential threats to the species. On the basis of the best scientific and commercial information available, the Service [[Page 13952]] concludes that substantial information exists to indicate that the requested action may be warranted. The Service believes that habitat destruction and modification are the main cause for the species decline.

13. Threatened And Endangered Wildlife
The bald eagle is on the US endangered Species List. It is classified as threatenedin all of the continental as well as its population of rodents and rabbits
Agriculture/Natural Resources/Wildlife Threatened and Endangered Wildlife There are a number of wild species in Colorado that are either endangered or threatened. An endangered species is one that is in such danger that it could become extinct. A threatened species is a species that is in risk of becoming endangered. It is very important that everyone realizes what wildlife species are already endangered and are threatened, so we all can help protect the diverse wildlife Colorado has to offer.

Bald Eagles Top Description: The bald eagle(Haliaeetus leucocephalus), named because of its white head, is found only in North America, and it's the continent's second largest bird of prey. Only the California condor, also on the federally endangered list, is larger.Here in the United States, the bald eagle is recognized as the country's national symbol, a distinction it has held since 1872. Young bald eagles are dark brown in color when they fledge the nest at about 12 weeks of age. Their head and tail feathers turn predominantly white in the fourth or fifth year. Adult males weigh about eight to nine pounds. Females are slightly larger, about 10 to 14 pounds. The birds' length is 31 to 37 inches with a wingspan of 6 to 7.5 feet.
Range: Historically, bald eagles lived throughout North America from Alaska to Newfoundland, and from Florida to California. But numbers started to decline in the last century due to nest damage caused by pesticides, human disturbance and loss of trees for nesting habitat. Since the bald eagle was placed on the Endangered Species List and the pesticide, DDT, was banned, bald eagle populations have rebounded.

What is the annual rainfall along the Jinsha River? Since there is no one taking count, I doubt if either of us will ever know. It is the same with animal species disappearing worldwide. There is no accurate count. Now, suppose it did not rain or snow along the Jinsha for several years. All life in Western China would be severely affected and all China would know something was wrong; no one would have to look at statistics. It is inaccurate to point out an animal as endangered, threatened, even extinct and get a real picture of the threat to our world . Many animals bob on and off and up and down the endangered ÒlistsÓ. As if all this is not confusing enough, nature itself also has a way of embarrassing the best of scientists. About five hundred sea otters (long thought extinct) suddenly appeared off California and have been around there ever since. We think the Caribbean Monk Seal is extinct because it has not been seen lately... Is it gone?

What is Wildlife? Wildlife is defined many ways. Some think of animals in a zoo. Others think of predators and prey–a hawk catching a mouse. Wildlife includes animals that live free and find their own food, water, shelter, and other needs. This means spiders, insects, backyard birds, and moles, as well as lions, tigers, bison, and elk. Domestic animals (e.g., dogs, hamsters, cows) are not wildlife. They have been bred by humans for a specific purpose and depend on humans for food, water, shelter, and survival. Some wild animals can be tame (conditioned to accept and tolerate human presence). Some normally wild animals (e.g., elk, bison, white tail deer) are raised as domestic animals for food or aesthetics. People often purchase skunks, raccoons, or even mountain lions from captive breeders as pets without considering the adult size of the animal, the specialized care it will need, and the potentially dangerous behaviors it will develop. These animals do not make good pets and are sources of zoonotic diseases (diseases that can be transmitted from wild animals to humans). People sometimes release these animals into the wild after they realize the amount of time and expense needed to properly care for them. They usually starve to death or seek out humans because they are unable to take care of themselves in the wild.

The diminutive Utah Prairie Dog has a brownish cinnamon body with a near white tail. Their bellies tend to be brighter colored than the rest of their bodies. In addition to the white coloring on their tails the Utah Prairie Dog also has a white chin and upper lip. They have large expressive eyes, marked by dark spots above and below them. The average mature Utah Prairie Dog measures a mere 30.5 to 36 centimeters in length and weighs approximately a half of a pound to two pounds. The Utah Prairie Dog is native to the American State after which it is named. Sadly the Utah Prairie Dog populations have been diminished in the wild. Their status ranges between endangered and threatened. The original decline in population was the result of many factors including draught, disease, habitat destruction, and poisoning. Conservation efforts have been successful and are helping these beautiful animals to regain their past populations.

    Northern Pine Snake - September Species of the Month
    If unexpectedly encountered on the trail or in the woods, this large, white-and-black patterned snake would most likely vibrate its tail, hiss loudly, and then try to escape. Though its bold appearance and actions may fool or scare some people, this particular species of snake is not venomous. In fact, it is harmless to people and is a beneficial predator in nature. The Northern pine snake Pituophis melanoleucus melanoleucus ) is a threatened species in New Jersey and is the September Species of the Month . The designation is part of a yearlong program to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the New Jersey Endangered Species Conservation Act and the formation of DEP's Endangered and Nongame Species Program (ENSP).

    • There are four types of pine snakes that can be found in the United States. The northern pine snake is found in the Northern and Eastern-Central regions of the country, in areas with sandy soils and dry upland forests. The population distribution of this pine snake is spotty and all indications suggest that pine snake abundance is decreasing throughout the Northeastern region. As a result, all states in which they are found have listed them as either endangered or threatened.

    Bald eagles are about three feet long (including long tail feathers). They weigh 8 to 13 pounds, about the same as an average house cat. Eagles have strong, broad wings. Their wings spread to measure from six to eight feet (nearly twice as long as your outstretched arms). The Bald eagle is not really bald, but it has snow white feathers on its head and neck, so the bald eagle appears to be 'bald'. The rest of it's body is either black or dark brown. Their bills are bright yellow. Bald eagles are fish eagles. They are not very good hunters, so they sometimes feed on dead animals. If they can not find any food, they may try to chase a duck, or steal fish from a smaller bird. The bald eagle's favorite prey are small rodents, dead or injured fish in shallow waters. The bald eagle's main characteristic is it's white feathers on it's head. It is light but strong. The eagle has powerful talons which can grip it's prey easily. It has a wingspan of 6-7 feet long.

    Giant pandas are an endangered species. They are often called pandas or panda bears, although their scientific name is Ailurpoda Melanoleuca. The giant panda is a large mammal weighing between 165-353 pounds. Its body length is between 4-5 feet including a tail that is five inches long. Their vision is poor but their sense of smell is excellent. They have a woolly black and white coat, which is slightly oily to prevent water penetration. Giant pandas are a very beautiful animal.This is why we have to so everything we can to save them. If panda breeding habits can be perfected maybe the giant pandas will not become extinct.
    There are a few reasons why the giant panda is endangered. One reason is that the panda breeding season takes place only from March to May. This makes it harder to breed a lot of pandas and increase the panda population. A second reason that pandas are endangered is because of where they live in the wild. Giant pandas are restricted to certain areas of China, their habitat, so that means that there is not enough space for all the pandas to live in.
