Wow, the thought of any kind of snake, anywhere near me, really scares me. You keep on being careful!

If I would have found a snake I would be in Canada by now and that would be on foot from FL.

Oh QS, I don't think I would like knowing that there is a venomous snake hiding under my house...he may just be trying to get warm, however, if you're having a cold snap. Take some comfort (you probably already know this) in the fact that he doesn't like you any more than you like him, and unlike crocs, they are not predatory toward humans. No gardeing for now, though - that's a sound decision. And keep your doggie safe. We encounter lots of exotic creatures here in our corner of paradise as well - so snakes so far, but we did find something called a tailless whip scorpion a few months ago in our yard. He was as big around as a DINNER PLATE. We asked around and some people told us they are good luck and don't sting and others told us that when they sting you, you turn black and die. Fortunately, he scrambled away (sideways) very fast.

Oh Karen, those ARE horrible looking! But they don't seem to sting from what I've now read.
But I would die of fright-no need to bite.

We have the Brown Recluse spiders that are tiny, but very effective with their venum. They told me when I moved here to shake my shoes out before putting them on for these and scorpions, and open the bedsheets before entering.
I haven't seen any yet, but I figure its a matter of time.
Maybe having snakes is a good thing! do they rid me of these others?

You say exotic....LOL! I guess they think we're the exotic! We're not the natives!

Yes, you are right about that, QS! I guess I haven't thought of it that way - LOL.
