Abstract

There is probably no inborn snake-dread. Snake species and personalities differ widely among themselves. A captive rattlesnake shed four skins and got four rattles in a year. Poisonous snakes shed and swallow their poison fangs. About 1600 rattlesnakes were presented for bounties last year in seven Iowa counties. Virginia elegans Kenn. is reported as new for Iowa. Figures of a double-headed garter snake and of a two-headed bullsnake embryo are given.
