Are Rattlesnakes Taking Over This College Campus?
Students aren’t the only ones going back to school at this college campus. So are rattlesnakes. Late August, September and October happens to be ‘baby season’ for the venomous reptiles. And rattlers have found the campus of Florida Gulf Coast University to be a welcoming place to breed, grow, and become their best snake selves. That’s according to visiting instructor Matthew Metcalf, who tracks snakes on campus. He told WINK he’s earned the nickname “the snake guy.”
