EMR Species Survival Plan

People rarely get the opportunity to see an Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnake in its wild habitat because they are rare, well-camouflaged, and shy. However, people can see these beautiful, fascinating snakes at zoos around the country. Here is a list of zoos that participate in the SSP program and have these snakes on exhibit.
