"When I saw the picture, I thought they were denning," said Chris Dieter, a herpetologist, biology teacher at Angleton High School and owner of Crocodile Encounters in Angleton.

"That's more common in the north; you don't see it very often down here," Dieter said.
...
"This time of year, when it's real hot, you're really only going to see them in the early mornings and late evenings," Dieter said."They tend to switch their behavior because it's just too hot for them.They don't even have to sun that much; the ambient air temperature is just where they need it to be."
Also, he said, snakes don't like to be out in the open, where they're exposed to predators.
If a person does encounter a snake, Heinicke and Dieter agree the thing to do is back away and leave it alone.
...
"Ninety percent of all bites are from the tip of your hand to your elbow, or from your foot to your ankle," Dieter said, which corresponds with someone either stepping on a snake or reaching towards it.
...
Dieter and Heinicke both said it's not true that snakes follow or chase people.
...
"The only reason they might chase you is if you're in the way when he's trying to get away from you and you're blocking his exit," Dieter said.
...
Also, as Dieter said: "You can easily outwalk any snake."
...
"They used to tell you to cut (the bite) open and suck out the venom," Dieter said.
