Beware Habu Snakes, Aggressive Until June

Date Posted: 2000-05-05

Okinawa Prefecture Health and Environment officials remind residents that the coming rainy season is the time when habu snakes are most aggressive. They warn that for about two months, until the end of June, the snakes are prone to attack if disturbed.

One hundred and sixteen people in Okinawa Prefecture were bitten by habu last year. One died.

The most likely places to encounter a habu are places infested with rats and mice, as they are the habuís staple diet. Those who go hiking and camping should use lights during the night as the snakes avoid bright lights.
