Here are some of the species you may find on Little St. Simons Island.
The Scarlet snake (Cemophora coccinea) is an elusive snake, rarely found by humans. This species is quite slender and reaches a maximum length of about thirty inches. These snakes always have wide red bands separated by yellow or white bands which are bordered with black. The bands do not encircle the entire body, leaving the belly of these snakes white or cream-colored.
The Hummingbird Clearwing Moth (Hemaris thysbe) is frequently mistaken for a hummingbird or bee based on the moth’s appearance and behavior. Adult coloration is variable, but a “furry” olive green and burgundy back is common. Its underside is light yellow or white on the thorax, and burgundy on abdomen.
The Northern Gannet is a large seabird, and the largest member of the gannet family. These birds have long, slender, black-tipped wings with wingspans reaching about 70 inches from tip to tip. Adult birds have yellowish heads and all white bodies (pictured above) while immature gannets are very dark with white spots. It can take three or more years to attain full adult plumage.
The Wood Stork is a large, white wading bird with black flight feathers. This bird has a long, decurved bill on its bald head. Its wingspan averages 5.5 feet, making it unmistakable in flight.
The American mink is a fascinating voracious predator in the Mustelidae family, which includes otters, weasels, badgers, wolverines, and minks. The Mustelidae family is actually the most diverse family within the order Carnivora.
