Large Snake!

4 Replies

This morning I was in the garden with the dog and I saw a long (at least one metre long) snake dashing away into the bushes. Should I be alarmed? Are snakes here venomous?

They are usually more scared of us than we are of them. Have a look here:

There are several types of viper here in Greece. Try to keep any grass in your garden cut low and generally avoid walking in long grass in the countryside. But yes, Acropolis girl is right that they are all very scared of humans.
