I had a listing where the sellers had moved out the week before, and was meeting the appraiser.  Bent down to pick some weeds out of the rocks, and a slithering snake scared me to death!   Sure it was a garden snake.

Anna,

Years ago, we visited the Snake Research Center in Sao Paulo, Brazil.  They produce anti-venom meds and ship it all over the world.  We watched various snake handlers, and sat through a lecture about all types of snakes.  

We once met a rattler on a hike , we acknowledged each other and moved on.  A

In Colorado, on a hike, we walked right by several rattle snakes; they just stayed put.  Presumably, they tend to be shy and prefer not to strike unless provoked or feel cornered. Surprisingly, we have some in Connecticut as well. Best to be cautious.
