Although we have brown snakes, they are very large and quite mean

Kylie, I always said when I lived in Texas, "All the mistakes God made when he created the earth, he put in Texas." And I still believe that.

Is it mainly Texas, Ads, that has the snakes?

Kylie, there are snakes in practically every state. And just about each state has a venomous one. Can't remember details, but there is no hiding from snakes here!

No. Just about every state has snakes. But there seem to be more in the southern warm states. And they are poisonous. I have never heard of any poisonous ones here in Massachusetts. Just garter snakes. They like to eat mice and insects.

Western cold states(aka Colorado) have rattle snakes! Snakes are everywhere. Here is a link for snakes in North America.

Let's see...snakes, yes; bears...grizzly and black, yes; mountain lions, yes; wolves, yes; coyotes, yes; bison, yes (I'm not kidding, they are mean)...I've even been attacked, in town, by white-tailed deer...

We have the horrible red back spider!

The box jelly fish, European wasp, the bull shark, Brown snake, saltwater crocodile, funnel web spiders, blue ringed octopus, death adder, lots of snakes, tiger shark, great white shark, lots of water animals are deadly here too

It is scary stuff when you think about it

That's why I live in the mountains...I may be able to run faster, but I sure as heck can't out swim...
