This beautiful place, though a bit flooded, has become a hotbed for something a teensy bit unsettling. As the waters rose, scorpions, snakes, snapping turtles, and spiders have had to evacuate their homes and run for safety. Unfortunately, that means we’re seeing a whole lot more of them. This flooded lake in Kansas is one reason why you may be seeing a few more creepy crawlies in the area than normal.
