Roam around for a little while and at some point you’re bound to see a snake sunning or hunting.
While we do see a “Danger Noodle” once in a very rare while, the common snakes we see are all working to help us with population control among our rodent and reptile residents.
Move along and they’ll do the same.
Here’s the species list of snakes we’ve seen. There are likely others but these are the ones we’ve seen first hand.
