$500 reward for evidence that the South Florida rainbow snake (Farancia erytrogramma seminola) is not extinct

The Center for Biological Diversity in Tucson and the Center for Snake Conservation in Louisville, Colo., have put up a $500 reward for evidence that the South Florida rainbow snake (Farancia erytrogramma seminola) is not extinct, as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service declared in October [pdf]. The organizations are hoping that professional and amateur herpetologists will keep their eyes and camera lenses open around Fisheating Creek in Glades County, Fla., the only site where the snake has ever been observed.Rainbow_Snake-Reward_Poster.pdf
