Whiting Woods is home to many species of snakes. Some, such as the King Snake, Garter Snake and Gopher Snake are helpful, controlling pests such as rodents, and somewhat harmless to people.

However, the Rattlesnake also lives here and is very poisonous. With a little care and self training, coupled with a dose of good common sense, there is small reason to ever fear the out-of-doors at all! Think about all the defenses that may be pressed into service during any outing to assist at either allowing the snake to escape away early, or promoting the person's ability to stay in control of any menacing factors or dangerous variables. This is all quite easy to accomplish!
