As the Valley heats up, so do the number of snake sightings, the Phoenix Herpetological Society says.

To avoid getting bitten, remember to look where you’re stepping or reaching when outdoors. Avoid putting your hands or feet in areas where you can’t see. Carry a flashlight after dark. If you do see a snake, make sure to stop and slowly walk away in the opposite direction. Snakes often hide in shady, damp areas.

The society works to educate the public about living safely with local wild reptiles. The group also rescues and relocates reptiles in the Phoenix area.
