Georgi Krastev, biologist: 17 species of snakes in Bulgaria, 4 of them poisonous20 June 2019 | 14:31 | FOCUS News Agency
Just because people are afraid of an animal does not mean they have to kill it, said the biologist. "There are many ways to avoid killing a snake. One of them is to look for a long rod, or to break off a branch with leaves and scare the snake away from the people. The long rod or branch will protect the person from a possible bite, if the snake gets scared. Every snake that feels threatened would react defensively," he said.
Snakes get active in spring when their mating rituals and search for food begin. After heavy rains the reptiles leave the wetland to move to warmer places. It ends in August when temperatures rise, the biologist explained.
