Been a number of recent snake sightings around my yard. I'm beginning to think that they have some sense of detecting weather changes.
Seems like they look for drier grounds before the rains arrive.
When I walk through the yard during early mornings I make some noise. Snakes tend to attack when they feel they are threatened.
If they know I'm there, without sudden surprises, they tend to slitter off.
There's been a lot in the local media of snakes in the toilets. I keep the toilet seat in an upright position when not in use. Toilet seats are great hiding places for spiders, snakes, mosquitoes, and other biting creatures
