I'm well aware that snakes are a part of living in the south. I've had many tell me that in the 5 years they've lived on Daniel Island, they've maybe seen 3 total..well, in the past 2 weeks I've seen 3 snakes. My girlfriend walked off her front step yesterday to see a copperhead on her bottom step. My other girlfriend took her kids on a bike ride 2 days ago and on the bike path they saw 3 copperheads and 1 rat snake. She went home to find her husband killing another snake in their yard. Another friend went to the playground and saw a snake crawl under the black mat under the children's zip line. Is this normal? Why so many? I'm SO freaked out as I have little children and as much as I tell them to stay on the paths they every now and then step off or weave in the grass, etc.

Ok, with the unusually wet spring the snakes are seeking higher ground, Daniel Island was swamp/farm land 10~15 years ago you still have lots of snakes out there....

Whoa! What the he** is going on? Was the weather unusual this year? do you usually have rats around? Are they water rats?
