It still shocks people to learn that here in England, we have snakes, but we do & one person who loves this fact is PhD student who specialises in snakes & amphibians, Steve Allain.
The topic of snakes is a big one so we kept this more specific to UK species however of course I asked some of the general questions like, "are they all venomous?" & "how the heck do they move?" but on from that, Steve told us all about the different species we can find here in this temperate island & how the vary.
As always, we also discussed the current condition snakes are in & what is causing some declines. The usual suspects came up but at the end Steve highlights organisations to focus on in order to learn more about these reptilian beauties.
