State Forest Picked For Reintroduction Of Rare Snake

SNOW HILL, Md. -- A rare snake is coming back to Worcester County.

The county has been selected as the first site for the reintroduction of the northern pine snake to the Delmarva Peninsula.

Department of Natural Resources officials and the Salisbury Zoo told the County Commissioners of their plans this month.

The snake, which has scattered habitats throughout the southeastern United States, has not been seen on Delmarva since 1972. Wildlife officials have selected the Pocomoke State Forest in southern Worcester as an ideal site fore reintroduction.

The reintroduction project is expected to take several years. DNR scientists will spend this summer building two winter habitats for the snakes, and next year, scientists will collect snake eggs in New Jersey, where the snakes are plentiful.
