The Screech Owl keeps in contact with its mate using a trilling song, known as the "bounce song."
The fox snake is a large yellowish or light brown in base color, with dark brown or black blotches down the back and sides. The head can sometimes appear to be reddish or orange, and the belly is a lighter yellow, checkered with black.
Eastern fox snakes are generally considered docile animals. They do however; have several defense mechanisms which they will use if they feel threatened, at which time they may strike. This is a constrictor, which means is wraps around the body of its prey and squeezes.
We have two fox snakes that call PPZ their home, one of which has been confirmed as a female, and she is over 13 years old.
