This is the perfect time of year for people to cross paths with snakes in Florida. It has been extra hot, we’ve had a lot of extra rain lately, and there is always more construction during the warmer months. All of these things can combine to cause snakes to move around more during the day. They may be looking for relief from the heat, from the wet conditions, or even moving to wetter conditions to cool down. Construction may also cause the snakes to look for a more stable place to hide.
What ever the reason, they are more likely to encounter human interaction. Aside from the unfortunate little girl in Central Florida killed by a family pet python, there have also been at least 3, possibly 4 snake bite victims in Florida, in just the last few weeks. All of these were reportedly rattlesnake bites. The latest was a child.
