October is normally when snakes - and their distant rel- ative, the turtle - are likely to be seen, as they search for a good place to hibernate dur- ing the approaching ,,dnten But the near-record rain- fall of the last two weeks has also dislodged even more of the cold-blooded reptiles. Snakes tedto alarm peo- ple who come across them, but there's actually little cause for panic: most snakes Troup are non-poisonous. Still, folks who spend time outdoors are advised to learn to recognize the venomous varieties. ,,Most poisonous snakebites in Georgia are caused by copperheads. The good news: their venom is relatively mild. Fatal bites are virtually unknown. Plus, copperheads are usually non-aggressive, and like most poisonous snakes, quick to retreat if given a chance. Their more-venomous cousin, the water moccasin, also known as the cotton- mouth, is found near streams and ponds in the area, and is known to stand its ground when disturbed. Two varieties of rat- tlesnake can be found in the Troup area. The timber rattler can reach upwards of six feet in length. Pygmy rattlesnakes, usu- ally under two feet in length, have also been found in the area.
