Description: The overland movements and upland habitat use of wetland-associated reptiles has important conservation implications (Semlitsch and Bodie 2003. Conserv. BioI. 17:1219-1228). However, for many species, particularly snakes, we lack a basic understanding of spatial ecology and habitat use. Regina rigida is a poorly known species for which "observations of any kind would be of considerable value in understanding its biology" (Gibbons and Dorcas 2004. North American Watersnakes: A Natural History. Univ. Oklahoma Press, Norman. 438 pp.). Regina rigida is a highly aquatic species and although sporadic reports exist of the snake found in habitats considered uplands, specific reports regarding distance to the nearest body of water are lacking.
