Brulen, I agree but I have worked in the construction business for over 30 years here and have seen snakes but none like the snakes in the everglades. I clear the land to build out and never have seen the venom snakes. If you are close to a river you will have them there but they do not go fare from the water.
What I have seen many are the black snakes. The black and some of the brown snakes is what I see a lot here but even them are small not the large ones. All the other snakes I need to go to the everglades to see them. Some of my friends have seen them in hunting lands but in the cities not much. I have lived in Miami for 53 years and worked outside 50% of the time on lands so I am not sure why but I have not seen the venom type snakes.
