Introduction:If you're looking in the bushes of the golf course in Florida, watch out for these snakes.
These can be quite large (as big around as your arm and 5 feet long) and are aggressive. Keep back from it, as it will strike at you.
These are small (maybe 12 inches long) but still poisonous. The body is thick for such a short snake and the head has the typical triangular look of a poisonous snake.
This black snake is slim and fast. It isn't dangerous, but avoid cornering it anyway. It is common in Central Florida and can be seen in residential areas. It has a light colored belly.
These can be tiny (black with an orange ring around the neck) and even look like an earthworm. The belly is orange. That's the baby, but they grow larger. It is harmless.
I haven't seen one of these, but it grows several feet long with a thick body. The nose turns slightly upwards to give the snake its name.
Leave snakes alone and let them control the rodents and other pests. Keep a wary eye out for the poisonous ones.
