Blue Racer(Coluber constrictor foxii)
For those of you who dont know, the Blue Racer is one of the most endangered snakes in all of Canada(if not the most). They are restricted to living on one island in extreme southwestern Ontario. A study of the population that concluded in 1995 estimated that there was a declining 250 mature adults left. 20+ years later, with continued habitat loss and road mortality, we can only assume that the population has declined further. I have been living on the island(out of a tent) since May 7th, working as a farming contractor and have spent every spare moment doing field work with these snakes.
This particular snake was aptly named "Blue"
