Why are there no or few snakes around Greenfield Lake?

Amy Hotz

Ginger Black, aquarist technician/snake expert at the N.C. Aquarium at Fort Fisher says they’re out there. But they’ve become experts at hiding from all the many intruders.

You don’t see them, she said, “Probably because it’s too busy around there. There’s too much traffic, too many people. I know there are some there but they’re going to stay hidden.”

If you do see them, it’s likely you’ll be looking at a yellow rat snake or non-venomous water snakes such as a banded water snake or a brown water snake. Up in the trees you’ll likely find rough green snakes that feed mostly on insects.
