Hey Ellie. Isn’t it interesting that we are both snakes, yet we are so different?
Hi Marcus! What do u mean?
I’m small, only about 38-51 cm long.
Wow u are small! I’m Ontario’s 3rd largest snake. I can grow up to 91-137 cm long! What do you look like?
I have 3 orange-to-yellow stripes running along my body.Hby?
I have yellow and dark brown patches on my belly. Where do you live?
I’m only found in Southwestern Ontario and in 4 US states.
Really? I am only found along the shorelines of Lakes Huron and Erie in Ontario, Michigan and Ohio. Do we prefer different habitats too?
I like to live in wet, grassy areas like fields.
That’s cool! I like to live in unforested areas like shorelines.
People shouldn’t be afraid of me – I am harmless.
My tail sometimes makes a buzzing sound but I am harmless too.
