Product Description

Each spring, 18,000 red-sided garter snakes emerge from underground dens in Manitoba, Canada. Earthwatch volunteers and students gather them up, and the snakes then participate in a day's behavioral experiments directed by zoologist Bob Mason. With a research topic whose kid appeal is hard to beat, this is a solid introduction to the ethos of experimental science as seen by a genial scientist.

Ages 9-12

Publisher's Description

Dr. Robert Mason has been studying a mysterious phenomenon for over fifteen years: the reemergence of tens of thousands of red-sided garter snakes — the world’s largest concentration of snakes — after a winter spent in a state of suspended animation in subterranean caverns.

This gathering each spring in the forests of Manitoba, Canada, is one of the most extraordinary events of the natural world and is the subject of study for Dr. Mason, a.k.a. the Snake Scientist.
