Largo FL wildlife control tip: Where do snakes live? Do more live in urban areas or in wild areas?
Snakes are never considered to be endangered species because they are found in almost every part of the world. From the feeblest of snakes to the most vicious, they are always in large numbers since they lay many eggs and reproduce in large scale. In all the countries that snakes are found, they create or have habitats that they’re suitably settled in. There are very many species of snakes that have been created after the interbreeding of two different snakes that are not of the same kind.
However much we would like to marvel at snakes and their behaviours, the question still is where these creatures live. Where are they found mostly? Where do they create habitats?
Just like any other living things, snakes have to acquire food, water and appropriate shelter in order to survive.
Snakes live in different places. The main places which snakes live in are Prairies, Forests, water bodies or even plain deserts. All these habitats depend on how well the area his supplied with food and water. The main foods that a snake eats are rodents, birds, little reptiles and frogs. Snakes eat their food while it is still alive. A snake will never feed on a dead organism. However, some specific snakes like to squeeze what they have caught using special muscles until they break all the bones in the organism. When this organism is now helpless, the snake eats them.
The above part was the wild areas where snakes can be found. But what about the urban areas? Snakes can also be found in urban areas. Some snakes have decided to move away from the wild and occupy places in urban areas. The main reason for this is the same. This is the adequate supply of essential foods and water. When urbanization takes place and small organisms like mice move to urban neighbourhoods to get food, snakes also follow them into the neighbourhood. It is the normal reaction of the snake to move to an area where it can easily look for its food and get it.
Therefore, snakes live in both urban and wild areas.
The side which contains the most snakes is improbable to determine since snakes reproduce according to the environment they live in. Sometimes wild areas have the most snakes since they have adapted to living there for a long time. Urban areas can also have the most snakes because urban areas have different types of food which attract rodents which in turn attract snakes.
Snakes only occupy places that are conducive for their sustainability and will not create a habitat in a place that has inadequate supply of food, water and some kind of shelter.
