It's the one Missouri lake that visitors most often want to take a dip in because it's the deepest and is in the heart of the most beautiful part of Missouri. It's also good to know if that sounds good to you that it also happens to be home to the most deadly snakes in the state.
Are you tired of the latest internet best of list? I've found something interesting about a Missouri place that was recently named the 2nd safest city in the state. I think the word "safe" might be questionable as I've since learned that it's also home to just about every snake and snake imaginable. Oh, and it's got lots of possums, too.
With the weather warming up, you just might start seeing snakes slithering through yards, fields and creeks. I'm one of those people that hates snakes. I can handle spiders, I can handle mice, I can handle about anything else, but I can't handle snakes. The good news is, very few of the snakes native to Missouri are venomous.
