Vote for state reptile, Game and Parks saysTell North Platte what you think
 

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is hoping to raise awareness of the state’s reptile species by encouraging residents to vote for a state reptile.

Nebraska’s current state symbols include western meadowlark, white-tailed deer, goldenrod, honeybee and cottonwood.

The state lacks a designated state reptile, however.

Nebraska is home to 48 species of reptiles, including snakes, turtles and lizards, the commission says.

For this consideration, game and parks has narrowed the list to six species:

• Ornate box turtle

• Common snapping turtle

• Bull snake

• Western hognose snake

• Prairie lizard

• Six-lined racerunner.

Voters are encouraged to select one to become the state reptile. To cast a ballot, visit OutdoorNebraska.org/reptilevote. The voting ends May 31.
