“Slither, and Hiss: Snakes of Wyoming” is the topic for the October Werner Wildlife Study Group on Thursday, Oct. 19 beginning at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to all.

The program will focus on the Wyoming bull snake and the state’s two species of rattlesnakes, Crotalus viridus viridus, the prairie rattler, and Crotalus concolor, the midget faded rattler.

Biologist and Museum Assistant India Hayford will cover snake ecology, mythology, and close encounters of the slithery kind.

The talk will take place in the Werner Wildlife Museum, located off the Casper College campus at 405 E. 15th Street. For more information call the museum at 307-235-2108 or email
