Hello,

I just acquired an adult Prairie Kingsnake from a friend. Hands down, this is the BIGGEST Prairie King I've EVER seen, and even could be bigger than some really big Eastern Kings I've seen in the past. I measured the snake tonight [no strectching of snake or string used to measure], and it came out to a whopping 64 inches! In the 'Peterson Field Guide to Reptiles and Amphibians of the Eastern United States', Conant and Collins quote a record size of 56 inches. Wow! This snake is a beast! I'll post photos tomorrow so I don't get accused of telling big fish stories.

Big animals, little animals, plants - right down to the sea itself. We need them, not just for their own sake, but because all this has to be here for everybody forever. Only one thing is certain: if we are to preserve our environment and save this priceless wildlife we need much, much more knowledge.
