Worker finds rattlesnake in Steiner

Snake on Flat Top
This 9-button rattlesnake was found in the afternoon of June 9 by Water Control & Improvement District 17 employee Ferdie Abadiano. 
Abadiano was checking a water meter box off of Flat Top Ranch Road. The box and snake were resting under primrose jasmine and among several toys at the residence.
Abadiano said, “The snake was very well behaved, resting among the leaves, just face to face too close.”
“I’d rather run across an older snake than a young one – small ones are most venomous,​” he added.
