Ribbons!

Ribbons!

Today we’re meeting an interesting mostly aquatic snake- called the ribbon snake. Any guess where they got their name from?

Ribbon Snake Fun Facts:

  • Ribbon snakes call marshes, ponds and lakes home.
  • They are excellent swimmers.
  • They are related to garter snakes.
  • These slender constrictors only eat ectothermic prey including frogs and fish.
  • They use their site and hearing senses when hunting for prey.
  • Ribbon snakes hibernate during the winter.

 

These neat little snakes have small heads and therefore eat smaller prey. Like all snakes they swallow them whole.
