Despite the recent discovery of the endangered Mexican garter snake near Lake Havasu City, there is no clear evidence on just how many of the reptiles live along the Colorado River.

“We don’t know much about them in Lake Havasu,” said Thomas R. Jones, amphibians and reptiles program manager for Arizona Game and Fish.

Looks just like all of the garter snakes I caught in California when I was a kid.

There are a lot of serpents in Lake Havasu; most notably those in "leadership" positions.


Trumps border wall will keep them out.
