      SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) — Spring is almost here and as the temperatures start to rise more and more people will be out and about enjoying San Diego .   Join us for a free presentation by Steve Bledsoe on "Dangerous Snakes of San Diego County" on Saturday, March 11 at 10 a.m. at Jack’s Pond Nature Center, La Moree Road.

    The basics: The San Diego Gopher Snake is native to southern California from Santa Barbara County to the Baja region of Mexico. They are also found in low mountain ranges (lower than feet above sea level) from Los Angeles to San Diego. They inhabit desert regions but also frequent suburban areas like vacant vicinities and abandoned buildings.   Adult western pacific rattlesnakes range from inches in length, so if someone saw a 15 foot snake it was NOT a rattler. Call San Diego County Animal Control for removing a snake .

      My wife and I are considering a relocation to one of the San Diego area suburbs (we live near Boston), but I have a bit of an unusual problem: a fear of snakes that defies description! Here in the northeast, we only see the occasional little garter snake, maybe once every 2 or 3 years. In reality, this snake is probably present on all mountains in San Diego County above 4, feet elevation, or which support proper habitat (Hubbs, ). Its elevation range extends from near sea level to ca. m (Palomar Mountain, San Diego County).
