“Serpentius Niveus (Snow Snake) has been reported in North America since before European settlers arrived. It is described as a white snake that loves the cold and has eyes that look like ice. When aggravated, the eyes are burning red. The size varies considerably, generally from 3 to 6 feet. It is said to be covered in a shiny fur of white or pale yellow.
“For evidence of snow snakes, look near the trails for a round or near-round hole in the deep snow, surrounded by a yellowish border. You may detect a faint sulphur odor. This tunnel is reported to be a trail thru the snow as it hunts for food, or the entrance to his under-snow lair. Few actual sightings of live snow snakes have been reported.”
