Mission Statement:

The Georgia Geocachers Association (GGA), the oldest Geocaching club in the world, is a group of people whose purpose is to encourage, publicize and support Geocaching in the state of Georgia.

Summer is here and that means more geocachers will be on the move out on the trails. While it's great to be outdoors finding caches, we need to remember that other creatures come out to enjoy the trails and sunshine too. So here is what you need to know about the most venomous snakes in Georgia.

According to The Georgia Department of Natural Resources' wildlife division, there are six types of venous snakes in the state. 

  • Cottonmouth - This snake has a triangular head and can be found on land and in water. 
  • Copperhead - This snake also has a triangular head. It has a tan and brown body and is responsible for most of the bites in GA.
  • Timber Rattlesnake - This snake can grow to six feet long. It is active from early Spring to late Fall. 
  • Eastern Coral Snake - This snake is highly venomous. Here is a tip to identify it - "Red touch yellow, deadly fellow; red touch black, venom lack."
  • Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake - This snake is the largest of the rattlesnakes. It is most prevalent in South Georgia. 
  • Pigmy Rattlesnake - This snake is small and has a tiny rattle. It often hides in leaf litter and can be very hard to spot.

Go out and find caches, but stay mindful so that you can have a safe and enjoyable summer!
