Default 'Extinct' Caribbean racer snake discovered in St Lucia

"A snake scientists declared extinct more than 75 years ago has been found living in a nature reserve on a tiny isle just off the east Caribbean island of St Lucia, conservationists said on Tuesday."
"
At least 11 St Lucia racers were spotted and tagged by a group of international scientists hunting for the snake in the Maria Islands reserve, which is part of St Lucia and located about one kilometre south of the main island, according to the British-based Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust."
