Snake tracks and Turtle Tracks Field Update for fall 2014 EXTENDED EDITION Part 2 of 2
This is a special extended episode of Snake Tracks and Turtle Tracks. In this movie length 2 part documentary join ENP naturalist Steve O'Neil as he follows the movements of two Timber rattlesnakes and two Eastern box turtles as they move closer, and finally into their winter dens over a two month span of time.
The snakes and turtles in this wildlife conservation project are wild animals that live in the remote forests surrounding Earthshine Discovery Center in Lake Toxaway, NC.
The purpose of this study is to learn as much as possible about the natural movements and habitat usage of wild Timber rattlesnakes and Eastern box turtles that live in and around areas highly used by humans. Results from this study will be used to help conserve and protect these species and their habitats from harm through better land use and management practices and outreach via these Youtube documentaries and programming in the Western North Carolina area.
