    Thank goodness for that..... there are only grass snakes in the UK (no venom) and our only venom snake is the adder, which usually lives in woodland, you don't see them very often (I have never seen one)... they are shy snakes who prefer to keep hidden away. if I saw a snake in the garden, think I would quite literally faint!

    We are very lucky here in that respect......................

    I live in Georgia (southern US) and we have a few types of venomous(SP) snakes. In the area i'm in, we have lots of copperheads and Cotton Mouths. We do have rattlesnakes, but I have never seen any. I have always wanted to go to England and see a farm just to see how different/alike they are to the ones over here. I bet we aren't that different. [​IMG]

    Beautiful place. I need to grow flowers next spring. I need more bees around here.


    Thats interesting about the UK not having many poison snakes. I've heard (or read) that Ireland has absolutely no snakes. I wonder iffn that is true

    Quote:Hawaii has only has one snake on the whole island. They use it to train dogs to smell out snakes in luggage at airports. Just one more reason to visit.

    That is such a beautiful yard. You are lucky in England that you don't have to deal with snakes. I live in Wyoming and rattlesnakes are abundunt. This year worse than others I hear. So far I have only seen them on the road but in the past we have had them close to our house.
