Join us on a trip to the Joyce Wildlife Management Area in the northwestern end of Lake Pontchartrain to learn all about the elusive and BEAUTIFUL mud snake and their prey, the very strange looking amphiuma! Out there we will meet another snake lover and herpetologist, Oliver Ljustina who is conducting a long-term snake tagging project in the area.
