    People are afraid of what they are ignorant to, it seems it takes a person with quite an open mind to accept creatures like snakes There are many beautiful snakes in Greece, Marianna. Here it is not common to see a wild snake, and even more rare to find a venomous one. I will admit I would be a little nervous being in a region where there are venomous anything, but this is purely because I am uneducated and inexperienced with anything wild and venomous since here just about everything is harmless.

    Moriah, the only dangerous snake around here is viper. For me staying out of long, dry grass and away from rock piles in summer, has worked quite well so far.
    I am more worried when I drive through the mountains. I go slow so that I have time to react if I see a snake heating on the road.
    They are in more danger than I am.

    Now that I know that they are not exactly as common as house spiders this does not sound so bad

    Moriah, we have the same - poisonous snakes live away from people.
