Everyone is trying to escape the heat, even rattlesnakes. A fisherman sent the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department a video of how he saw a diamondback rattlesnake swimming on OH Ivie Lake near San Angelo back in April.
The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department featured the snake video for its #WildlifeWednesday post on Facebook on Wednesday, August 3. Officials wrote in the caption that most snakes can swim and that they’re not interested in humans. If you leave them alone, they’ll be on their way, officials said.
