We saw one go into the airconditioning unit at POFQ when we were walking by (you know, the one under the window??) There was no one in the room, and we informed the front desk. IDK if it could get into the room through the air conditioner??

Keep your kids away from the landscaping as well. My friend's daughter was bitten by a snake at CBR. My cousin is an ER doctor in Ft Walton and they see lots of bites from pymgy rattlers who love to hide in mulch!!

We were at POP a couple of years ago in October. We were walking from the pool to our room. There was a small snake that slithered right in front of us on the sidewalk. I freaked out! I am terrified of snakes!!!

Oh my word, I am not going to be able to sleep now thinking about this. I have a huge snake phobia. I have nightmares at least one a month about snakes. Gulp! I'll definitly be requesting a 2nd floor room at CBR.

LOL! You people crak me up. Growing up here I've never been afraid of snakes - I used to run around barefoot as a kid trying to catch black racers at my grandma's house. They're more scared of you anyway...

Last May at CBR, we were walking back up to our second floor room and there was a huge black snake just kind of haning out on the walkway in front of some bushes slithering around, but not going any where. A family with a little boy was watching it and the little boy(3-4 maybe) was crying and trying to get a way while dad was saying just look at it, it wont hurt you, while his mom was telling his dad to knock it off, he's scared.
It was pretty creepy. You just dont think of stuff like that when you live in upstate NY. The only time you see that stuff is at a wild animal park or zoo.
I mentioned it to someone and they said it was probably a racer. But it sure was ugly.
The rest of the trip, I kept occasionally looking down when I was walking....

When we were getting off the bus at one of the parks last month, a bus driver yelled out to somebody taking a short cut through the bushes "don't go through the bushes -- This is Florida -- there could be snakes in the bushes!" Now, not being from somewhere that has poisonous snakes, I don't know if snakes could be in the bushes on the medians, but it sure made me think twice about taking short cuts.

I saw on the news that Florida is having problems with pythons because people who bought them as pets were letting them go when they got to big and now there is a real problem.

Why anyone would do that is beyond me!
