Northern Ribbon Snakes Discovered in Quebec

Northern Ribbon Snakes (Thamnophis sauritus septentrionalis) have been found in Quebec. They were observed for the first time in this province in 2003 — they were not known to exist here prior to that — when a population was found along the Quebec shore of the Ottawa River. Here’s a report of some subsequent observations of ribbon snakes in Quebec from this year. With pictures.
