Red and yellow kill a fellow.

You sure that was a king snake instead of a coral snake. The tail of a coral has only black and yellow bands.

He is sure. That was the point of:

Red rings touching yellow mean coral.

Red rings touching black means Scarlet Kingsnake.

One of the locals says that the bull snakes are out about two weeks before the rattlers. Well I have seen a bunch of bull snakes over the last two weeks. So......
We do make the bull snakes show ID. At first glance they look too much like a rattler.

He did release it. Coral snakes are venomous but they rarely cause any deaths or injury since they are not aggressive to bite and their rigid fangs are not designed for effective biting.

Fence is a great conservationist. That coral snake ain’t gonna hurt nobody.

No deaths reported in North America in the last 50 years.

None of the coral snakes I find will ever hurt anyone either.

Yesterday we turned the water into the irrigation ditch. When that happens all the neighbors gather and as the water is coming down the ditch we use pitch forks to clear out any debris as it is washing down stream. A couple days ago we burnt the dead grass and brush along the ditch. So yesterday one of the pitch fork crew found a large rattler who didn't run fast enough to get away from the fire. I was happy to see it.

Sure glad our rattlesnakes can't run.
If we'd of know this we'd of picked our own cotton.

When we found that burnt snake Neighbor B said it was the only one on my property. He lied. I killed a bigger one today not too far from where the burnt one was at. Ten rattles and two buttons. A big snake for this area.
