If you do choose to take your snake outside, there are many things you need to be aware of, and precautions you need to take. Make sure you are out of the public (this includes nosy neighbours) such as a fenced in backyard. You need to be certain you know the history of the lawn, and that no pesticides were used, etc. You need to be aware of any possible escapes (rocks, holes, trees, gardens, etc) and keep your snake away from them. DO not keep your snake out for extended periods of time, they are nocturnal animals and are sensitive to the suns powerful rays, as well as it can be stressful for them to be out in new surroundings. Its all pretty much common sense.
