Most people are associating reptiles with snakes and pythons as they are often featured in the mainstream media and people in rural areas, small towns often encounter the snakes. Snakes may be poisonous or non poisonous depending on the species, however it is recommended that all snakes are avoided to the extent possible as most people do not have the necessary information and skills to identify whether a snake is venomous or not. The snakes are usually found in densely forested areas, in gardens and other places where they find shelter.
Reptiles do not have good eyesight, yet they have excellent hearing powers, allowing them to detect people, other creatures in a particular area. Killing many reptiles is prohibited as they are an endangered species.
