There are many types of water snakes found in the world. The type of snake you encounter depends on the region in which you are traveling. You should know that a snake could strike you from a distance of half of their body length. Hence it is safe to stay at a distance more than half of their body length. This striking distance is only when you encounter the snake in land.

In water their striking distance is very limited. Better avoid the areas in which the snakes sun. Usually they will be sunning in the branches that protrude over the waterfront so that if they find any encounter they will drop themselves into water and escape. That is why when you are canoeing you have to be careful when you move into the low-lying areas where branches of trees protrude over the waterfront. Some of the common water snakes that you might come across are the northern water snakes, red belly water snakes, banded water snakes, cottonmouth snakes, and the brown water snakes. The northern water snake is usually 22 to 59 inches in length and is found in the lakes, streams, rivers, marshes, swamps, ditches, and ponds. It is thick bodied and has a dark band around its neck. You can find half moon spots in its belly. It is found in the central and eastern US. Usually they come out in the night.

The brown water snake is usually active during the day and rarely hunts during the night. Fishes and frogs constitute its main dish. It also climbs the branches to sleep on the overhanging branches over the water. It usually escapes when you frighten it and if you need a bite you can catch it! It is usually found in the southeastern U.S. The Diamondback water snakes have a chain like pattern in its body and have a yellow belly. It is found in the marshes, swamps, and the lakes of south central and southwestern U.S. they have long teeth and hence the bite from these snakes would be more painful.

Armadillos are relatively recent immigrants to the American south and southeast. Their population has spread rapidly in the few decades they've been in the United States, and they have already taken over nearly all of the non-desert areas of the southern half of the country. Most commonly seen as road kill, armadillos are also pests that can destroy extensive amounts of outdoor space with the digging and burrowing they do to search for food.

The Basics
The most common variety found in the United States is the nine-banded armadillo. They generally weigh between 12 and 22 pounds. They are protected by a hard outer armor that looks a bit like a shell. They have long claws that are optimized for digging, which they extensively do in their search for insects, their main source of food. 'Dillos have powerful noses that can smell an insect through 8 inches of soil, and they're not shy about chasing after a meal. They are mostly nocturnal animals who live in burrows when they are not out digging up insects.

Remove Your Problem
It can be difficult for an amateur to keep their yards safe from these insect hunters. Fences are easy for them to burrow underneath, and scent deterrents either wash away or take excessive effort to properly implement. Your best bet for removing and excluding armadillos from your yard or home is to call a professional pest control team. These wildlife extraction experts will be able to safely remove and relocate your pesky armored intruder. Once your pesky visitor is gone, your pest control experts can make recommendations on how to successfully keep any future intruders out of your yard and away from your house.

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.
