LAGUNA VISTA, TX (KXXV) -

March and April are generally the time that rattlesnakes emerge from hibernation and residents at this south Texas town spotted a huge one. 

Laguna Vista Police Officers assisted in removing a huge snake from a trail after the Bay Area Birders of LV called police.

Rattlesnakes emerge when temperatures are 60 degrees or higher. Snakes become most active when the temperatures are between 80 and 90 degrees. 

Laguna Vista PD reminds residents to "use caution and are aware of your surroundings when walking on the trail or any other locations." 

Rattlesnakes are most active during spring and during early morning and late afternoons in the summer.
