Snake enthusiast Lily Ginn, 4, right, observes the tail of a speckled kingsnake held by Rachel Diersen, park interpreter, Sunday during the Slithering Snakes program at the Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area Visitor’s Center. Five of six different types of venomous snakes that naturally occur in Arkansas live in Northwest Arkansas. A speckled kingsnake is not venomous but does hunt other snakes, including venomous ones. The next Slithering Snakes program will be Jan. 20 at 1 p.m. at the Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area Visitor’s Center.
