Reptile Hunter

This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We follow ‘reptile hunters’ Chris Rombough and Sarah Petrakis into the wilds of the Willamette Valley and the Columbia Gorge to see just how many snakes and other reptiles we can find. Their finds include a garter snake, gopher snake, racer, ringneck snake, western rattlesnake, and an alligator lizard. You may be surprised to see what’s hiding right along the trail.

First Broadcast: 2008
Producer: Ed Jahn
