WILDLIFE IN ANAVERDE
The Anaverde area is home to many creatures!
Rattlesnakes are common in Anaverde.
Remember, the smaller they are the younger they are, and the young can't control the quantity of venom they inject, so are much more dangerous. Snakes have been known to reflex bite hours after they've been killed, so be very careful when disposing of them.
There are pet vaccines for rattlesnake bites, but they do not counteract the venom, only slow it's effectiveness. So even if your pet is innoculated, get them to the vet right away if they are bit.
Coyotes in Anaverde can be very agressive. They have been known to take pets from owner's arms on the paseos. Do not leave small animals unattended, even in your yard.
Owls are capable of carring away animals as large as small goats.
Many tarantulas have been seen crawling on homes in Anaverde.
Watch for webs around water hose reels, trash cans, lawn furniture, children's toys, and other outside areas.
