If you found a snake in a tree, would you know what to do? Today, a local Longmont reptile rescue group assisted a family who had come across a 5-ft python in a local park.
The Colorado Reptile Humane Society has assisted in many local Longmont cases with wayward reptiles as well as been part of national news stories, including a 2009 story about an illegal shipment of 50 juvenile Chinese Soft-Shelled Turtles that were confiscated at Denver International Airport.
Get to know them better, they are a Longmont asset and also offer many educational opportunites. You too many find a reptilian creature one day and not know what to do with it. The Longmont Examiner was happy when they assisted in providing adequate care for a rather large wayward toad who was almost eaten by her backyard lawnmower (and hopes to not come across the garter snake that has recently been spotted in her own backyard, but will know who to call if so!)
