Snakes, raccoons, bears ‘Oh my!’: See photo gallery of creature sightings in Colorado


Not the best picture because I had to zoom in. It was a rattlesnake so we wanted to be safe & kept our distance. He/she was on the back side of the Aurora reservoir bike path.

DENVER (KDVR) — Temperatures are on the rise across Colorado and so are wildlife and reptile sightings.

From a bull snake at Lair O’ The Bear Park, to a raccoon dumpster diving at Barr Lake, to a bear making its way to the eastern plains of Colorado, and a rattlesnake on a rattlesnake on a bike path at the Aurora Reservoir. And while it might be a “normal” sighting in Estes Park, plenty of elk have been spotted lately.
