Warmer Weather Rouses Snakes In Ariz. Desert

PHOENIX (AP) — Recent warm weather in Arizona’s desert regions has snakes coming out of hibernation earlier than normal.

The Arizona Republic ( ) reports that means more people are coming into contact with snakes in yards, gardens and other places.

Daniel Marchand of the Phoenix Herpetological Society says the organization is already getting calls for its snake-removal services.

That assistance typically isn’t needed much until mid-March or early April when high temperatures usually start averaging between 80 and 90 degrees.
