There is small island off of the southeastern corner of Brazil named Ilha da Queimada Grande. The small island is home to more then 5,000 snakes and is said to have one of the densest populations of snakes anywhere in the world. The Brazilian government prohibits people from visiting the island. One most obtain special permission to land on its shores.
Snakes have a bad reputation. This reputation is however not deserved. Snakes do not go out and purposely attack people. Snakes simply want to be left alone.
When snakes are left alone they are completely harmless. Snakes bites on people usually only happen when someone is purposely handling a venomous snake(usually when trying to capture or kill the snake).
