Species:  Western Fox Snake
Sex: Unknown
Name: Vulpes
Age: Hatched in 2008

Vulpes is our only snake that is wild caught. A pair of snakes tried to raise a family underneath front steps of a person who did not like snakes but also did not want them killed. The young were captured and removed and placed in education facilities.

Fun Fact:
The name of this snake is derived from the musky odor it releases when handled, which is similar to that of the red fox.
