Texans have encountered our state's most notorious snake in some unexpected places.

That’s what Cheryl Fleming had in mind when she strolled on the beach at Galveston recently, until a not-so-relaxing encounter: She saw a seven-foot Western Diamondback rattlesnake just a few feet from the surf and shared the picture on social media. The picture drew a huge response from people who were surprised there was a poisonous snake on the beach.

Fisherman Keith Kurwicki had an unexpected rattlesnake encounter on a fishing trip to Port Aransas last summer.He accidentally dropped some fishing bait in the cracks between the big rocks along the jetties. When he reached into the crevice to retrieve the bait, a surprise awaited him. Even inland areas like Austin had its share of snake bites every year. In Travis County, EMS sent 18 venomous snake bite patients to hospitals during a recent 12-month period.
