Racing Towards Revival: Antiguan Racer Snake

Racing Towards Revival: Antiguan Racer Snake

The source of this particular snake’s misfortune can be traced back to the late fifteenth century, coinciding with the arrival of slaves on the island of Antigua in the Caribbean. Rediscovered in 1995, the entire population of the Antiguan racer snake, comprising of a mere fifty specimens, had been confined to Great Bird Island for approximately five hundred years. Once rediscovered in 1995, conservationists put much time and work into conserving the snake. In fact, the conservation efforts were so successful that Antiguan racer population rocketed to more than five hundred by 2010.
