This was posted in chat today and I felt it was too important to be missed by the chat box scrolling. .

Afternoon all! Craig from VCA here. Just a quick PSA to remind you to watch out for snakes this season. We are averaging a bite every 7-10 days at the animal hospital. Two have been neurological venom snakes and both dogs died from the effects. They have been primarily in the Holcomb and Hannah Flats area, but the last one was over by the gun club on North Shore. That was one of the fatalities, so we just wanted to help spread the word. Its a busy snake season and we do have hybridized snakes carrying neurotoxic venom...not just the traditional hemotoxic variety.

Some Mojave snakes have adapted to be both Neurotoxic and Hemotoxic. This makes their bites more difficult to treat, as you don't know which type or mix of venom a particular population may have.

Thanks for the link Jelly.... it says in the article they live at an altitude up to 5000 ft. Big bear city sits at 6700 ft. are they still a threat, or is the article wrong?

When you’re happy you enjoy the music, when you’re sad you understand the lyrics.

The ecology in Baldwin Lake is very similar to lower elevations. We have beavertail cactus, sage brush, rabbit brush, desert prickley poppy - and Mojave snakes. It just is a bit colder in winter.

Get your dogs avoidance trained! It saves their lives- and could save yours as they alert to snakes much earlier than our senses notify us!!
