There are a few snakes - Thasos Island
There are a few snakes

This is really a small problem but I though I'd write about it anyway. While you are staying at the seaside in Thasos, you are not going to encounter snakes. On the roads, you sometimes see dead one (Greeks will run over them deliberately just to kill one).
However, when you go hiking over rocks and grassland you might encounter a snake here and there. As far as I know there is only one poisonous kind of snake around (and several non-poisonous one), and even that poisonous one is not of the worst kind. You would just have to get to a doctor. You want to protect yourself simply by wearing ankle-high or higher hiking shoes, and maybe not shorts. And don't pick snakes up out of sheer interest.
