Prairie rattlesnake (Crotalus viridis) hibernacula : monitoring history in Alberta 1987-2002

Description

This report summarizes the results of surveys at rattlesnake hibernacula in Alberta conducted between 2000 and 2002, as well as data from the literature and from historical numbers of snakes at hibernacula as captured in the Alberta Biodiversity Species Observation Database. Observations of snakes at hibernacula made by other observers during the formal study are also included. A compilation of historical and recent observations of snakes at hibernacula provides a means of estimating changes in snake numbers at these sites. Until more intensive methods for estimating the size of the prairie rattlesnake population in Alberta are used (e.g., mark-recapture techniques), these observations and surveys can be used to inform future status assessments of this species.
