Watch Your Step, More Rattlesnakes Are Emerging From Their Dens Around Utah
As temperatures heat up all around the Beehive State, hibernating animals start to emerge from their dens, including rattlesnakes. Utah is home to seven species of venomous snakes, and you’ll want to watch your step to avoid stumbling onto one.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
How do you feel about rattlesnakes? Are you afraid of them, or do you respect their place in Utah’s wild habitat? We’d love to read your thoughts in the comments!
