There are venomous snakes around here (like water moccasins). It is more common to see 'black racer' snakes...no venom and they usually "race away".
Development in our area seems to be reducing sightings.
I am NOT a fan of snakes...even in the zoo!

AAAaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!! I would not like to see that. I am not happy to see regular black snakes in our yard & they are harmless.

I would never be able to go out on to the patio again :shock: :shock:
