Snakes are an important of wildlife diversity. Many like them, some don't; but on one of the lower 48 is a state that doesn't have. Guess or maybe a few already know.

Thank you, Alastar.
Do I get to pick a door, like the Price is Right?
I would like door number 1. No, wait.
Door # 3! But, I prefer even numbers.
Door number 2. Did I win the car????
An hibachi grill? With metal skewers?
That's real nice. :-)
I slipped up below.....I know I'M LILY....you're Belle!.......these pseudonyms are adding up......I think I have at least 6 now!
DJ, you won a trip to Maine where there are no "wile" snakes. Never seen a wile snake myself, but I bet they are ferocious if Maine made a law to keep them out.
They're out of Ireland ladies! lol
Hey Genna, thanks. I got interested in them because so many hated them. Found the truth was something else entirely! Good to hear from you:)
Alastar, venomous or not, I did not know the answer. I knew it was not Nevada, for we have six varieties of rattlesnakes here - plus the gila monster (talk about "baddy" this guy is major "baddy".
OMG Phyllis......I have goosebumps everywhere just reading Ur comment!! How do U know where U can go and not go? Where to walk, have a picnic? I would be afraid to leave my home! I'm totally fearful of things that are dangerous & wiggle &a
No fear, effer. More than likely any snakes will get out the area quickly yep!
"No fear," famous last words.......just like every Attorney says, "Dont' worry about it." !!!
Paula, No worries, watch where you walk and sit. I have managed to live my whole life without being bit by a snake. I lived in NV for 30 years and have lived in AZ for about 10. In between, I lived in TN and saw more venomous snakes there.
So true, Becky. Out of all the many years ive walked and hiked only twi2 or 3 times have I come on a copperhead and once a 7 foot rattler in mts. Except for one big copper they all skedaddled quickly.
Great answer, John. I goofed and forgot to put venomous in front of snakes. Oh well, another day no dollar lol thanks
There are no venomous snakes in Alaska either, Alastar...
Your absolutely right about that, John. Thank you. In the question I had the word continental so as to refer to the lower 48. It was in forgetting to use venomous a verb to snake, I think. Anyway, apologize and next time will have them right.:)
Thank you, Alastar. No worries yet the proper adjective is not continental, after all Alaska is indeed within continent. The adjective is contingent...
You learn something everyday, thanks John.
It is indeed a great blessing to learn each and every day...
God's Speed to ya!
You better run, Lily. This is my second, "Best Answer". I am going to slip up on your "100 Best Answers" and tap you on the shoulder.
Run, Lily, Run!!
Lily....I TOLD you.....I passed 100 ages ago...am gaining on 200!! I won't be expecting a tap on my shoulder unless you have a present for me! LOL
Rock on gals!
Oh, Alastar, they are just jealous 'cause I won the hibachi grill.
A couple of sore losers.....that's what they are.
Did ya have to tell 'em about the prize?! Oh geez...lol
That Paula is a mind reader. Can't keep any thing from that woman!
Just think how hush-hush we would have to be if I had won THE CAR!!!!!
I am holding out for ice skates; a mode of transportation that is fatal for snakes...
John, it sounds good, but you are not likely to find ice and snakes in the same vicinity. Of course, there could be a terribly lost snake with a broken
GPS. I suppose that could be possible. Hope they do not come to me looking for directions.
Ice skates: oh my, much better than a hoe. But dern it, I like the misunderstood creatures!
alastar HUH??? You LIKE snakes? What the hell is there to like about a snake?? They're not cute, cuddly nor helpful....they don't fetch, play or respond.....they're scary, poisonous & creepy.......Like snakes? Not in this life time!!
One person's trash is another's gold. Nah, you can feel the way you do, just don't go out or way to harm one. Your cool. I just got to understand the stigma and the reality about 'em. No biggie my friend.
Alastar I would not ever intentionally HURT any creature...honest. Besides, I imagine one has to get CLOSE to a snake to hurt it!! No chance of that!!! LOL I know a lot of people who like snakes...I don't understand it I guess.
