Winter Park, FL, may be the happiest place on earth, but that doesn’t stop nuisance Florida wildlife from moving to the area. Bats, for example, are prevalent. These pests carry rabies and easily break into attics, one of their favorite places to roost. Surprisingly, they only need a gap less than half an inch wide to get in.

Approximately, 8,000 people are bitten by poisonous snakes in the United States annually. Even if the snake is not poisonous, the bite can trigger an infection or allergic reaction in the victim. Snakes can be very dangerous, so it is important to use caution.

Symptoms

Rattlesnakes, copperheads, cottonmouth water moccasins, and coral snakes are all poisonous snakes. When bitten, individuals may exhibit various symptoms. Common symptoms include swelling at the site of the bite, bloody wound discharge, and fang marks in the skin. The bite will cause severe localized pain which may include a burning sensation. In addition, diarrhea may result. Convulsions, fainting, dizziness, and weakness commonly occur as well. Vision may blur and excessive sweating may be present as well as fever and increased thirst.

Snakes. Just the mention of the word can send chills up the spine or send one fleeing in the opposite direction. To some they are just scary, slithery, sinister serpents. However, they are also sneaky. Yes, sneaky. The serpent has been known for its sneakiness since the beginning. Remember Eve? It was because of the sneaky sales pitch of the serpent that Eve "bought", Adam "bit" , and they were both "booted out" of the Garden of Eden. Oh yes, snakes can be extremely sneaky, and can show their craftiness in a variety of ways.

The American Copperhead is a great example of a cunning culprit. This snake has a rust and copper colored body with dark crisscrossing bands. It has a bright copper colored head, hence the name, Copperhead. This snake is easily recognizable, that is if you see it. Because of the snake's markings, they are easily hidden. Let this snake curl up on a pile of fallen leaves and you may never even know it was there. Pretty slick huh? But that's not all. These snakes learn how to be masters of guile at a very early age, as a matter of fact from the moment they are born. The baby Copperhead is born with a yellow tipped tail which it uses to lure unsuspecting prey. The juvenile snake hides beneath the leaves and sticks its wiggling tail up. The tail, resembling a grubworm, attracts moles, mice, and other such rodents. When the small mixed-up mammals take the bait, the clever Copperhead enjoys his dinner.

Yes, snakes are still as sneaky as ever. They still bewilder, beguile, and sometimes even bewitch. They are masters of disguise as well as masters of deception and they probably always will be. So if you happen up on one of these "sneaky snakes", just acknowledge, admire, and then allow him to do his thing.

While everyone knows that Orlando is an outdoorsman's destination, what you may not realize is that the state is also home to thousands of snakes, six of which are venomous. But don't worry; with a little common sense and knowledge under your belt, you can keep safe and fang free.

The Problem

There are no less than 55 different types of snakes in Orlando. The most common include the good old rat snakes, water snakes, and green snakes. Many of these snakes are beneficial to the environment, killing and eating not only pest species like rats and mice, but also other, venomous snakes. Speaking of which, a small minority of these species, 9 to be exact, are poisonous.

Venomous snakes

These venomous snakes are the Copperhead, the Coral snake, Eastern, and Western varieties of Cottonmouth (Water Moccasin) and five types of rattlesnakes including the Timber, Canebrake, Eastern Diamondback, Dusky Pigmy, and Western Pigmy. The Eastern Diamondback is the largest of these, reaching up to six feet, while the Timber Rattler goes just slightly smaller. While the telltale 'rattle' of these pit vipers are often heard as a warning, the smaller pigmy variants have an almost silent shake to them, but are no less dangerous. The majority of Eastern Diamondbacks are found in Orlando, but are increasingly being encountered further north.

If trying to keep your camp or home snake free, be cleanliness is the best policy. Remove any trash, trash piles, scrap timber stacks, and other things that can lead to nice bedding areas for the no-armed slither type. Spring is an especially strong time of year to be on the lookout at the camp for invading snakes that are very active during this period. The last thing you want to do is be away all summer and come back to find a snake cave.

If a snake, of any sort but especially a potentially venomous one, bites you seek immediate medical attention. When getting help, you will want to be able to advise what type of snake bit you, so try to remember any details such as length, head shape, markings, color, and actions. Take a picture if you can with your cellphone or camera rather than attempt to capture it. The last thing the hospital needs is you bringing some strange snake into the emergency room with you.

It could make them as mad as a rattlesnake.
