Throughout the world, people are living, working and playing in venomous snake territory every day. Venomous snakes are found in every continent besides Antarctica and are responsible for 2.5 million envenoming snake bites, resulting in up to 125,000 deaths each year. While most bites are nonlethal with the help of medical treatment and antivenin, most are also preventable. Aside from avoidance, the most effective means of snake bite prevention is by using snake protective clothing such as snake boots, snake gaiters, chaps, and gloves.
Unfortunately, the parts of the world with the most snake bites and deaths are also parts of the world where poverty is very prevalent and antivenins are very limited in supply. To make matters worse, the average person cannot even fathom spending money on snake proof clothing as food and water are more important. The countries that have the highest snake bite occurrences as well as deaths are those that are located in Southern Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and most of all India.
In the United States, every state besides Maine, Alaska, and Hawaii are home to at least one of the 20 venomous snakes that are native to North America. That puts many people in contact with venomous snakes every day. North Carolina is the state that experiences the highest amount of bites with 19 of 100,000 people being bitten per year. Even though the national average is much lower at 4 per 100,000 people, the risk is still there and needs to be addressed. As stated earlier, the best defense against snake bites is avoidance of the areas that they call home. This though is tough when the places you live, work and play are the same areas that snake do the same. For these situations there is snake protective clothing that has been responsible for preventing innumerous painful, if not fatal, snake bites.
When most people think of snake bites they think of stepping on a snake and getting bit. What many fail to realize is that many snake bites occur to the fingers and hands of people. This is why snake gloves are also an important part of snake bite prevention. Most bites to the hands occur when doing such activities as gardening, picking up brush, or sticking hands in places where snakes might be hiding. As you probably already know, snakes blend into their environment very well and unless they hiss or rattle, most will not ever be seen.

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.

Florida is being overrun with snakes like the Burmese python. They are putting the natural wildlife in the Everglades in danger. The population, estimated to be over 100,000 in the Everglades, will attack and consume any type of wildlife including an alligator.
The governor of Florida is considering signing a bill putting a bounty on a captured snake to reduce the population. This procedure was used to control the alligator population. Besides the bounty, the licensed trappers will keep the proceeds from selling the meat and skin. The trappers will be licensed and trained by the state to capture them. It will be considered very dangerous for anyone to try to capture them without the proper training. It is competing with the alligator as the number one predator in the area.
Because of the size it reaches at adulthood, it can outgrow it's surroundings in captivity. As an adult, it requires a large amount of food and an expensive enclosure. Owners tend to overfeed it. Many owners cannot deal with it as an adult and will release to the wild. As in the situation in Florida, it can start to breed and overwhelm an area causing an imbalance with the natural wildlife.
