Point Pelee National Park in Ontario, Canada is filled with many species of wildlife, insects and reptiles such as this Eastern Fox Snake who glides across the vegetation growing in the marshland water. A harmless species of snake which resides in oak grass plains, on the prairies or in the marshland lakes.

As this Eastern Fox Snake slithers his way around, frogs should make themselves scarce as the juvenile snakes love a good meal of frog. Other prey for an Eastern Fox Snake is birds, rabbits and other small animals which are killed by constriction.

A fully mature Eastern Fox Snake can reach lengths of six feet with a skin coloring which has a yellowish background blotted with dark brown patches. The head is a solid brownish hue, while the underneath is yellow in color with black checker markings.

During spring and summer, the Eastern Fox Snake blends in perfectly with the colors of the landscape creating the ideal camouflage as it slithers through the marshland.

The Eastern Fox Snake is often mistaken for a Massasauga rattlesnake as they vibrate their tails when being threatened and many have been killed because of this. While visiting Point Pelee National Park in Leamington, Ontario, keep your eyes peeled in the marshland for an Eastern Fox Snake as they are listed as an endangered species.
