Watch for rattlesnakes lurking in Bluebonnets

Bluebonnet season is upon us, the time of year the entire state looks like a Blue Bell Ice Cream commercial. The annual bluebonnet bloom is definitely a sight to behold and you may be tempted to take your family out for photos but beware because the warm weather also brings poisonous snakes out of hibernation.  They are most likely to appear at dawn and dusk. If you or your Brittany see a snake…back away! If anyone is bitten go to an ER immediately. 

There are four kinds of venomous snakes in Texas: coral snakes, copperheads, cottonmouths (water moccasins) and rattlesnakes.
