Snake, Blue Racer

Panel before
Comments: Blue Racer population has been steadily declining. At one time, this long slender snake was found all over southern Ontario, Canada, Iowa and Ohio. As of 1995, however, there was only one small area in Ontario where the Blue Racer Snake could be found and its numbers had dropped to only 250 snakes. Though the Blue Racer Snake is protected against activities like capture, harassment, trade, and killing, the Blue Racer Snake's numbers continue to decline.
