Bushcraft - Central Texas Style - Knowing the Hazards - Snakes

It is important to know the hazards that are present in your environment. Information and knowledge of those hazards will play an important part in your survival. One of the hazards you will face are the dangers posed by local wildlife. In Texas, that means snakes.

Texas has a larger variety of snakes than any other state in the U.S. Most of the snakes in Texas are of a beneficial variety and work to control the population of rodents, lizards and other snakes.

While the vast majority of snakes in Texas are non-poisonous to humans, there are some very poisonous snakes in Texas that should be treated with respect and a great deal of caution.

Knowledge of the hazards you may face in a survival situation is an important part of being prepared and may be critical for your survival.

Man, I HATE snakes. I realize they are beneficial in cutting down populations of insects and rodent vermin, but Mr. No Shoulders still gives me the Willies . . .

Thanks for the post and attachments.

There are quite a lot of variations between snakes, even those of the same species. Even though I'm fairly familiar with those found in my area, you could easily write book about any one of them...hence the links.

Thanks anon.
