A snake walks into a bar …
Friday, June 11, 2021 by Tai Moses
The bartender says, “How did you do that?” In the next installment of the Wild Neighbors Speaker Series, Travis LaDuc, curator of herpetology at the Biodiversity Center at UT Austin, will be discussing an important and often misunderstood animal – the snake. LaDuc will talk about the natural history of Central Texas snakes and identity some of the most common species you’re likely to see in the region. He’ll explain why snakes are such a critical part of the ecosystem and why, most of the time, humans have nothing to fear from these shy, solitary animals. Thursday, June 17, noon-1 p.m. Register for the webinar here.
