  14. 14. Caution should even be taken when the temperature starts getting into the 90s. <br />

  26. 26. This holds especially true during the hotter months of the year. <br />
  27. 27. That’s because the snakes come out for a little sun on occasion, but usually lurk in the coolness of the shade during the day.<br />
  28. 28. Your unsuspecting pet can come upon a rattler unknowingly and out of the blue comes a venomous strike. <br />
