Nope but they are not very common around here either. So cannot say the opportunity has even risen lol.

I wish they weren't common here. We put out Snake Away the other day to help keep them away. We usually see a few each year, at least, and last year we had a baby one in the house.

No, they're not common here. Not ones that bite, anyway.

I've only seen one around here, and that was a black snake in my back yard.

No. My niece was bit by her parents pet snake (ball python) though. And when we were in like the 1st grade I remember one of my friends getting bit when she jumped in a pile of leaves.

I grew up in the country on an old farm and we saw them all the time. Most often, we saw water moccosans (aka cottonmouths). When I was 13, I was running outside and jumped over the roots of a huge oak tree and landed right on a timber rattle snake (at least thats what we think it was). It bit me on the inside of my right ankle.
My foot and leg turned black and was hugely swollen all the way up to my hip. I could hardly walk for 6 weeks. At the time, they didn't give antivenin to children unless it was certain circumstances so I did not get it.
The first 2 days, my gut entirely shut down. I couldn't even pass gas. It hurt soooo bad. I was in agony. The stomach problems were the worst of it. I still have stomach issues from it (paralytic ileus) from time to time.

We have had a couple snakes on the back porch at the new house. I am pretty sure they were not poisonous. I'm not scared of them and think they are pretty neat - but don't want to risk them being poisonous and getting around the kids. We finally got some Snake Away but haven't put it out yet...that's one of my projects for this week.

never been bit. know tons of people who have, though. two of them were really close to dying, due to the amount of time between getting bit and getting help. One is an environmental engineer that our company worked closely with, and when he returned to work & i finally saw him again, he was TINY. He was always a big-ish guy. He was soooooo skinny when i saw him again.

No never bite but see a few in the yard or neighborhood each year.

One Funny story
When I was a toddler my parents lived in a trailer and one time we had a snake some how get into the septic system and came into the toilet. I still remember seeing the snake in the toilet to this day. And to this day I have to look in the toilet before using it even if it's in the middle of the night and I know with our house and system this would be about impossible.
