Snakes may seem to be on the prowl more than ever right now, but officials say don’t worry.
If it seems like more are around, it’s because they are feeling frisky. But they aren’t out to get closer to you.
“Right now it is breeding season for snakes, so they are on the move,” said TWRA region officer Chris Simpson.
Despite anecdotal reports of snake sightings, their numbers are not up.
“The population is about the same it’s always been,” Simpson said.
