Snakes and Spiders

Beitragvon MmeTortue » Do Mär 01, 2007 9:53

Hello nypy,

There are no venomous snakes or spiders to be found on the island of Mauritius. We had several times little snakes sneaking in our kitchen during the night but they didn't do any harm. (I screamed anyway... :O) )

It's a completely different story within the sea. You shouldn't touch any snails, fishes or crustacea as some of them could hurt you.

Have a lovely holiday

That thing you saw creeping in the house, its called a grass snake (couleuvre in french). They just extend and retract, shed skin, thats it :mrgreen: ! I dunno why they call it grass snake in English but in French its not called a snake in direct translation.

There are no real snakes in the wild on the Main Island. :Q

The snakes can only be found on Ile Plate or Ile Ronde (2 islands) and they are not venonimous so no sweat.

Yeah Mme Tortue is right concerning the sea snakes, some can be venonimous so don't even think about touching one.

Did u know that's its a kind of bad omen (that's what mauritians think) when u see a grass snake in the house. :pp)
