According to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, most bites occur between the months of April and October when snakes and humans are most active outdoors.
Children (and adults) should never approach or try to handle any snake in the wild, even if it appears dead.
As adults we must teach childrens about snakes because it's carries lots of harmful germs. It is recommended childrens under 5 years to avoid contact with reptiles and amphibians.
On social media as Mzansi we have seen lots of strange things, such as this young girl was seen holding a snake not sure if it's dead or still alive.
According to studies holding a snake even if it's dead may caused you a problem, it's may happen it still alive and struck on you instantly.
What is your opinion about this image? Should parents suffer the consequences for being too careless?
