The Snakes have Awoke in Manitoba!

Tens of thousands of red-sided garter snakes have risen from their winter slumber in Manitoba.
They’ve slithered out of their dens into the sunlight, wiggled the cold away, and started ravaging each other.

Experts call this phenomenon a “mating ball”.
The Narcisse Snake Dens site is a big tourist attraction here in Manitoba.

Here is an example of what it looks like:

To quote Jimmy Fallon “EW”

The snake dens are at their best viewing points for only two or three weeks, from late April to late May, and again in early September. So if you do find yourself without plans this weekend, don’t miss out on the slithery love making!
