'Jeffery' the snake lives outside near the Visitor Center
If you have visited Ijams this summer you may know that the Visitor Center as acquired a resident black rat snake that lives outside near the building. After all, we are a wildlife sancuary.
We see the snake every now and then and know that it is working to keep down our resident population of mice, moles and shrews.
A week ago, after a morning rain, one of the fathers of the scouts attending the Scout Sleepover happened to get the above photo, while one of the scouts gave the mascot snake a name.
Thank you, Matthew!
