Rattlesnakes may be found in this area. They are important members of the natural community. They will not attack, but if disturbed or cornered, they will defend themselves. Give them distance and respect.
- Rattlesnakes only bite people in self-defense
- Rattlesnakes don’t have to be coiled to bite.
- Rattlesnakes don’t always rattle before biting.
- Snakes prefer 70˚F to 90˚F but may be out in the sun at 60˚F.
- Less than 0.1% of bites are fatal. Get help quickly.
- Never intentionally approach a rattlesnake. 56% of bites occur when people pursue the snake.
- Wear high boots to walk through the grass.
- Watch the ground as you walk.
- If you can’t see the ground in grass or weeds, move slowly.
- Do not run on ground you cannot see.
- When you see or hear a snake leave the area immediately and warn others.
- Make sure the area is safe before taking a pet off-leash.
