Coral Snake

Posted: May 2, 2013 in Photography, Reptiles

The rule of thumb for avoiding a poisonous coral snake is RED touch YELLOW kill a fellow, RED touch BLACK friend of jack. This referring to the bands on the snake. As you see in this photo it is red touch yellow. A big four to five foot long coral snake. Personally, I find them relatively harmless and reclusive. If you get bitten by a coral snake, you were holding or molesting it.

I took this photo at the Houston Arboretum. He was on the run when he sensed my presence.
