The City of Lakeland Parks and Recreation took to Facebook to alarm about the annual coupling of the water snakes. “It appears they have congregated for mating. They are non-venomous and generally not aggressive as long as people do not disturb them. Once the mating is over they should go their separate ways,” reads the post. “We have put up caution tape in the area and are in the process of hanging signs to make the public aware of their presence. This is for the protection of the public and the snakes,” they added further. Frog Caught Eating One of The Most Venomous Snakes in The World!
