This picture of a Speckled kingsnake eating a copperhead was taken a few days ago. The name “king” references the fact that they are known to eat other snakes (including venomous ones and other kingsnakes). They’re opportunistic feeders, eating a variety of prey: small mammals, lizards, and other snakes. These snakes have a distinct “salt and pepper” coloring.

Herman, the Sulcata tortoise, advised us that Father Christmas may have already arrived ahead of the Holiday Trail of Lights fundraising event! We went out on the sanctuary looking for him today and almost caught him. Take a look and share the exciting news with your friends.

Carissa Braun, Assistant Animal Curator, captured the emergence of a butterfly from its chrysalis last week. Enjoy!
Another Queen Emerges I know I shared a butterfly cocoon chrysalis emerging last week, but this one was a bit more fun. The key to a successful hatching… - Carissa Braun - Google+

Bringing nature and people together to discover, enjoy, experience, restore and preserve our priceless environment.
Introduction

Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary, in McKinney, Texas, is the result of Bessie Heard’s vision for the future and her commitment to the community and
North Texas.

Founded in 1967, the Heard consists of a 289 acre wildlife sanctuary and a natural science museum for the primary purpose of educating children about nature. The Heard exists to bring nature and people together to discover, enjoy, experience, restore, and preserve our priceless environment. In keeping with Miss Heard’s vision, the Heard’s purpose is threefold: education, conservation, and preservation. Through education, particularly for young people, the Heard emphasizes an appreciation of nature and its conservation.
