Easter eggs might not be the only things hiding in your backyard. If your kids are out searching for hidden treasures or just playing in the yard, be aware, rattlesnakes often like the same hiding spots.
Hymes says if you happen to encounter a snake, walk away and don’t try to move it yourself. An estimated 80% to 90% of rattlesnake bites happen when homeowners try to deal with snakes on their own — without proper training.

The Phoenix Herpetological Sanctuary also wants people to understand that killing a snake or other reptile isn’t recommended. “Wildlife plays an important role in our world,” says Russ Johnson, the president of PHS. “We can coexist if we understand them better.”
