    I'm planning a visit to Punta Cana at the end of June ... I was wondering about the snakes of the Dominican Republic. Are there any posionous snakes?

    There are no poisonous snakes on the island. Don't know why but that is so.
    There are some constrictor-type snakes, which can grow large, but i really doubt thatyou will ever see any. in my banana farms, we used too have little green snakes that the guys would kill, but i showed them that they were harmless-much to their surprise that i would even touch one!! The only negative thing about it was that they stunk!! As bas as a skunk!
    So don't worry about htem. Go and enjoy.

    Like Hillbilly said, there are no dangerous snakes in this country! We do have various kinds of Boas, but they are very rarely found in houses! (As you may know, Boas are harmless!)
    The other snakes are just as innocent!

    You may find (If you are realy looking in the bush) some wolfspiders, which could throw you some irritating hair from their abdomen or a scorpion or two which may sting as a bee!

    But if you stay in the Area of the Hotels, there is everything clean and it is very hard, to find something like the above!

    Enjoy your stay!

    I was about ready to believe Mr. Oberon. I lived in the D.R. most of my life and never saw snakes, except for tiny green ones in the woods, which scared the angels out of me. Nevertheless, when I came to Louisiana I was told about all the poisonous snakes here and I'm still frightning of the thought of them, even though I have not had the bad experience of being surprised by one yet.
    Good luck to you JoAnn. Enjoy your trip!

    Mi papa trabajo' en un trabajo de disen~o de tuberias para Monsanto en el 1979. Vivimos por un an~o en St. Charles parish (creo que todavia le llaman parish a lo que se llama aqui en Virginia condado, no?) y alli empece a aprender ingles, en ese tiempo solo tenia diez an~os y tengo muchas gratas memorias de ese estado y la ciudad de Nueva Orleans. El el 1980 regresamos a SD y perdi' bastante el ingles que habia adquirido. Lamentablemente nunca visitamos a Baton Rouge, pero a mi papa' se le pego' la "fiebre" de manejar casi todos los fines de semana a un sitio diferente: Mobile, Alabama, Missisippi, el golfo de Texas. Te puedes imaginar? Dominicanos guiando por todo el "deep South" de los EEUU sin saber mucho ingles? A site to be seen, LOL!

    A proposito, la primera culebra que vi en mi vida fue en Louisiana, en el patio de la casa que rentabamos. Mi mama' JAMAS quiso pisar el patio de nuevo, LOL.

    Saludos,
    Natasha
