As a keeper of numerous snakes I can say that they are nothing to be afraid of with a little bit of knowlege. Snakes do not roam around looking to bite people, they hide the majority of the time hiding in wait for rodents and small reptiles. They generally do not leave from their hiding spots very often. While out they are very frightened by people and prefer to flee rather than bite. As to comment that "the only good snake is a dead one" remark, This could not be more false. Snakes play a very important role in the food chain and we would be over-run by rodents without them. Use caution when wandering around in nature because you are a very small piece of its perfect system. people like to think that the world revolves around humans. It does not. Teach your kids to either know their area's snakes of to avoid them all together. I would advise the second for young children.

I grew up spending my childhood summer at a natural bavitat and reptile exhibit building devoted to understanding snakes and other reptile.
I do know that snakes do not hear, they do sense vibration. At times a snake may shed it's skin in order to grow. During this process some senses are covered with hazy loose skin they are shedding which explains a quick and defenseive bite-thrust.
The hazy dead skin they shed may hide some usually brighter colors. Beware of movement...beware of tall grass. If you want to discourage a snake from coming arund...spay, with Wasp and Hornet spray from your local store around fence-bottoms, base of your home or sidewalks and curbs. This will damage folage, so try not to hit your grass. It works. Ivy is a place you may find snakes clustered at the bottom if...baby bird carcus' fall out of the nests in the ivy. Snakes prey on these birds. My husband and I were forbidden to use this spray at a rented property we were at, before purchasing our home in Ennis, TX. The ivy was used by snakes to retrieve food. My husband stepped over a 3 1/2 foot rattle snake...the family that owns that home are now back in it and use the hornet spray there now.

Living on the West side of Dallas on Colorado Blvd where it ends.
We had countless rattlesnakes coming out of the woods to dine on the stupid neighbor's pigeons.

Doing yard work one day I left the garage door up.
Guess what?

I stepped on a rattle snake that night in the garage.

Last summer I went to the Dallas nature center on Mtn Creek rd near Clark rd, it's very nice, but the sighs say snakes, beleive me, there are some snakes.
I'm pretty sure I saw a rattler and a coral in the wooded area, always wear boots when walking at the center.
Both are very poisonous and the venom takes affect very quickly.

I live in Arlington. Have you heard of any sitings there? I have two small Grandchildren and they know nothing of snakes. They have never seen one up close. I remember hearing of a rhyme about corals snakes and can't remember what it its. I know that there is another snake similar in appearance but is not venomus. Do you know what that rhymn is?
