Default Snakes in the toilet?



This was originally within the "frogs in the toilet" thread, but I wanted to address the snake issue, so created a new topic in order to get the discussion focused on snakes.

AS a Florida native, I do not know of any poison species of frog in this area, I have heard of the cuban variety, the ones
around here are harmless, unless someone has brought something in recently. Snakes do occasionally end up in the lue.
LOOK BEFORE SITTING



OMG!!! :yikes: Snakes? Are you serious? I have a MAJOR PHOBIA about snakes. I've mentally accepted that FL has more snakes than NY. However, I can't accept them in my home! And, I will be living alone, so have no one to come to my rescue. Is there anything that can be done to ensure they won't come in through the lue or any other means?

Didn't mean to alarm anyone, It does happen only rarely, usually makes the paper if it does happen, so
do not despair, the likelyhood of this occuring is remote. relax and enjoy the lue. ;D

Hey Mickey - I'll see your phobia and raise you TEN! That would be a deal breaker so fast!!!!! I know they are down there but I refuse to think about it. If I found one in the house, the house would be on the market so fast it would make your head spin!!! OH MY GAWD! :yikes:

(I've got my hands over my ears and can't hear any more about the ssssss being in the toliet!....na na na na na na na na!!!!)

i've yet to find one in the house or toilet but 1 inch diameter slate/black snakes are common every spring .
lanai and garage are as close as the've come to being inside.
sorry, i don't know their name but have been assured they're not dangerous.

Hey Best Mickey, this fear about snakes and the lue sound like the one you asked me regarding aligators in TV and worrying about sitting in Sumter Landing and being able to close your eyes :joke: This isn't the everglades and the area has been inhabited a long time now. Great having a baby sister!

I'm with all of you. I was worried about additional tornadoes and hurricanes but now frogs and snakes. My hands are over my ears too - la la la la la and now I'm only reading out of semi-covered eyes to see what anyone else says. Ugh!

In Florida, you have to watch out for the giant palmetto bugs too. They can reach a size of 10-12 inches in length. You can knock them unconscious with a heavy shoe and then throw them out the door and hope they won't come back. AAARRGGHH!!!!!!!!!!!!
