Protection considered for pretty Arizona snake

The Tucson shovel-nosed snake mostly eats scorpions, and is threatened by habitat loss

TUCSON -- Good news on a local conservation issue I've worked on for years, the US Fish & Wildlife Service announced today it is considering legal protection for the imperiled Tucson shovel-nosed snake.

The beautiful Tucson shovel-nosed is an indicator of the overall health of the Sonoran Desert, and as our natural web of life suffers, so does our own quality of life.
