I know this is sort of OT, but has anyone ever seen any snakes on the jogging trails at Wilderness Lodge? I can't get this image of me running and tripping over a giant snake out of my head.

I should have never clicked on this thread. I am terrified of snakes. TERRIFIED! We had a tiny little snake (seriously, it was like a long worm) come in our house once and I sat on the counter and cried until my neighbor came over and her 7 yr old son took it outside. They still laugh at me because of that but anytime I see anything that even resembles a snake my heart speeds up.

Yikes!

OMG NOW I will not rest while we're there! I'm going to be staying at CBR may 1-7 and snakes will be on the brain constantly...

We saw tiny little lizards on the sidewalks at CSR last year. Never in the room!

How on earth would you even get to it with the boards all around the bottom of the bed? Because you certainly can't look under the bed. Did they lift the mattresses and box spring to get to it? We had one in our pool area years ago. Tough one to remove because they are poisonous

Yes. Sorry! haha. I saw one on the main walkway between the boat dock and the back entrance to the lobby by Artist Point at the end of the night. BUT it was just a little green guy, maybe 4-5 inches long, and he was just trying to quickly get over to the other patch of grass. I am afraid of snakes but he didn't concern me. I tried to keep an eye open at night after that but wasn't too worried!

I have no idea why I even opened and read this thread, now I am horrified at the thought that we want a ground floor room at POR! I am TERRIFIED of snakes, and I grew up in the backwoods with them as well.

On our last trip we saw a small (about a foot long) black snake at 3am on the YC walkway from their bus stop, that was enough to make my heart stop for a moment!

I'm glad I read some of this snake thread and it will keep me aware! Will check my cabin thoroughly and not wander off too far from my menfolks. I figured we'd see some gators but forgot about snakes.

Doesn't matter. Snakes climb.

Here's the thing. Most beds have a wooden platform. Its not like you can just lift the duvet out of the way and look under the bed, so I don't know how they could have done it without lifting up the entire platform. Just saying.

There is no under the bed, they sit on wood platforms.

I've seen lots of snakes at OKW, usually in the pool areas, but also on the walkways. Snakes are common all through the South in the spring and summer. I had a 12" to 14" grass snake in my kitchen here at home this morning, my cat was playing with it. I took it outside.
