Have you seen me? Green ratsnake sightings have occurred around the park, but not in the park. It is not rare, threatened, or endangered, but is secretive and rarely observed. If you spot a green ratsnake, leave the snake where it is and ask a ranger to fill out a wildlife observation form at the visitor center or download here.

The mountain ranges in southeast Arizona where Coronado National Memorial is located are called Sky Islands. They suddenly rise out of the flat desert landscape into the sky, like islands rising above a calm sea.
