If you saw this or a similar sign while walking, would you avoid this area?

Or would you ignore it and continue walking?

As I walk mostly in suburban, or National parks, there's no problem.
Often have come across snakes dozing on rocks. I don't annoy them, they don't annoy me.
R E S P E C T!

I am petrified of snakes and if walking and I saw this sign, I would probably go a different way as when I walk it is usually for 30 minutes each morning with my dogs.

I would not go into a place that had a sign like this unless there were a lot of people around who would have chased the snakes away by their walking.

I used to go to a park where the dogs could run off lead and sometimes people posted signs that there were snakes and I was always so happy when we got back to the car and the dogs were safe.

Having lived in a snake infested area for 10 years and having seen one of my dogs try to play with a deadly snake, no, nowadays I would go elsewhere. More for my animals than for me as they often have a very short time to get to a vet if bitten by one of our poisonous snakes.

That's a description of more or less the entire continent of Australia so I would pay it no attention.
Also, scorpions are not insects, they are arthropods. Poisonous insects would be what, bees and wasps?
LOL I looked at it and thought the same...kind of describes all of Australia!

I wouldn't avoid it but I would be more cautious.

I have a healthy respect for any venomous creature.Up here in the north,we have many poisonous snakes,but I stay away from where I am aware they are. Just common sense really!! My friend has non-venomous snakes as pets,and I find these utterly fascinating...a whole other matter indeed,and I have no issue with these whatsoever!
We also have very dangerous spiders,but not where I am,in the suburbs.Again,when I know the critters are of the dangerous sort,I stay away,otherwise it is life as usual.

We don't see too many of these signs in most areas, so I can live without going there.

Or should I say, I haven't seen any myself....so to me I'm in the right spaces.

If I did see them.....I would avoid big time.
Could not walk around with that kind of wildlife....it's their area.
Having done a few walks in outer suburbs/country towns on rail trails, etc, I would be cautious/wary if I saw a sign like this, but me and my friend would do the sensible things like stick to the trail, though if I saw a snake or lizard I would try to get a photo!
Yes, I probably would. Coming from the UK I am still a little wary of some of the "beasties" in Australia.
Having said that I have become quite brave about catching any huge spiders I find in the house with my "spider-catcher". Neither my late husband nor I would want to kill them, so we put them back outside and I fervently hope every time that they don't come back in!
Certainly would. The sign is there for a reason.
I would ignore the sign if I was looking for dangerous snakes and insects to film or whatever
Have you been in my back yard, we have brown snakes, red back spiders, trap door spiders, centipedes, and red belly black snakes, but they don't scare me, but i am carefull when gardening, thick gloves and long trousers are a must.
