We have poisonous and non-poisonous snakes. Rattlesnakes are common and one should always be careful in tall grasses. On hot days they will come out to warm themselves in and around roads. Some pets automatically know to fear and avoid them but others can be too curious for their own well-being. Watch your pets and remember it is not legal to shoot snakes even on your own property. Furthermore, discharging firearms in GVM is not allowed.
