To a lot of people, this may sound like a nightmare — but there’s something so captivating and intriguing about having so many snakes essentially taking over the entire area, covering every inch of the ground. Even if you’re not at all a fan of snakes, you still might find yourself wanting to know more about this incredible event.
The Narcisse Snake Dens consist of four active dens, and have viewing platforms built along each one so people can marvel at the incredible amount of snakes all gathered up together. There are so many that they completely cover the floors of the dens, and at first they look more like vegetation than live animals — until you realize that the vegetation is actually moving. The area is perfectly set up for the needs of the red-sided garter snakes, and so there they’ve stayed for years and years, and every year they emerge again to amaze everyone from miles around.
