About the scientists:
Leonard Jones is a 3rd year PhD candidate at the University of Washington from New York City by way of TX. His dissertation work focuses on genetic differences between island populations of WA's three garter snake species. Additionally he seeks to figure out the relationship between evolutionary history and color pattern differences between populations of the common garter snake, which is found throughout North America. He's loved snakes since childhood, saw Anaconda in the theaters as a kid, and is still confused by the snakes' excited shrieks.

Rory Telemeco is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Washington. Rory’s research examines how the ecology and evolution of reptiles is affected by global change, both past and present. Rory has researched numerous snake, lizard, and turtle species across the United States, Central America, and Australia, and has loved all manner of scaly creatures for as long as he can remember (no joke: his earliest memory features a snapping turtle prominently). He became fascinated with the movie, Anaconda, while working at the Oklahoma City Zoo, where he observed people of all ages surprisingly terrified by the 13’ green anaconda on display, apparently because of their aptitude to eat people not once, but twice.
