Carden Alvar Nature Board by Bob BowlesJumping Mouse & Milksnake


On a morning walk at Prairie Smoke Nature Reserve we observed a Meadow Jumping Mouse & a Mikesnake. The Meadow Jumping Mouse is one of 2 species of jumping mice in the area. They are characterized by very large hind feet & small, short forelimbs. They use their large hind feet to powerjump away when alarmed. The milksnake had large dark blotches on a grey background & a black & white checkered belly. A beautiful snake indeed & a great 'mouser' in farm areas. Always something interesting to see at Prairie Smoke.
