Staying indoors is exactly what we're all trying to do these days, even if that means missing out on Texas' spring and summer seasons. However, the total opposite applies to creepy critters such as snakes and alligators, who are starting to show their faces now that the weather in the Lone Star State is getting warmer. Local officials are warning us to stay away from snakes and alligators in Texas if spotted while on a solo stroll or even near your home.\nThe Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office took to Facebook recently to remind Texans to practice social distancing from snakes and alligators, as well as each other.\nSince then, people have begun spotting them across the state, and they are anything but a sight for sore eyes.\nWhile we're sure they're enjoying the lack of people they're seeing in their habitats, that doesn't mean they won't strike if anyone attempts to get up-close and personal with them.\nAmid the threat of the pandemic, getting attacked by a potentially venomous snake is the last thing people could need right now.\nThe majority of snake types in Texas are non-venomous, but that doesn't mean you should lower your guard in any way.\nSome common snakes to spot in Texas are copperhead snakes, coral snakes, and rattlesnakes. Oh my!\n"Since everyone is home and "social distance" is a term 2020 will be remembered for, please remind your kids to keep their social distance from our native wildlife," said the Fort Bend County Sherriff's Office.\nIn the comments, you can see many people sharing their own experiences with running into this scary wildlife.\nView this post on Instagram Practicing social distancing. @mudskippermudmotors #keepflwild #gatordontplaynoshit #swamplife A post shared by Cody (@blastncastcinema) on Mar 26, 2020 at 7:17pm PDT\nAbove is a video of someone spotting an alligator in Beaumont, just a few days ago!\nYou never know if you'll see them on land or water.\nView this post on Instagram I wasn’t the only one out enjoying this beautiful day. #snakes #watersnake #snakesofinstagram #snakephotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #centraltexas #chinaspring #hillsofchildresscreek #texaswildlife #texassnakes #nonvenomous #nikon #nikonphotography A post shared by Chad Hendricks (@rchadhendricks) on Apr 1, 2020 at 7:10pm PDT\nWhile animals we don't often see can certainly be majestic, snakes and alligators are a bit on the scarier side, if you ask us.
