Vulpes is our only snake that is wild caught. A pair of snakes tried to raise a family underneath front steps of a person who did not like snakes but also did not want them killed. The young were captured and removed and placed in education facilities.
The name of this snake is derived from the musky odor it releases when handled, which is similar to that of the red fox.[/box][/one_third_last]
