    Default Coral snakes....

    Found this wriggler in a dirt pile today....hate wacking the local critters, but due to it being the most venomous snake in North America, and their fondness of visiting the inside of your house, a little beheading was in order. Over 2 ft. long...pretty big for a coral snake....

    Yeah...keep in mind there was another 4" where I lopped his head off. Not an aggressive snake...have a hard time biting. Unfortunately most people get it in the bare foot. They love shoes...

    Same here. "Red next to Yellow will kill a fellow - Red next to Black, okay for Jack".
