Jake the Snake was abandoned by its owner. When the school library media specialist agreed to adopt the snake from the local humane society, Taylor was one of the first to volunteer his time as a snake wrangler.

To join the Critter Wranglers, Taylor was required to complete a WebQuest called Snakes Alive to be sure he had the necessary background and snake care skills. This inquiry-based activity led Taylor through a series of guided activities that required the used of a variety of online information resources.

Taylor has joined a group of students who have been observing and caring for the snake.

The media specialist suggested that the Critter Wranglers record their experiences working with the snake. She suggested that they go to the Bird Treatment and Learning Center blog from Anchorage, Alaska for inspiration.

The students created their own blog called Jake the Snake.
