"Red touch black, safe for Jack. Red touches yellow, kills a fellow". - Army Ranger
I know it's orange and black, but l just remember the "red touches yellow" part, works for me.

Brother, fer some reason my internet in the mountains sucks on the PFF page (takes 5 min to load every page) but other sites are fine.... could have just texted me. Looks like a king but cant clearly see the color pattern got 100% certainty...

Default Great find.

I've been in the woods all my life and I saw my first Scarlet King Snake a few weeks ago right in front of the Crystal River Mall. By the time I got back to him, somebody ran over him. So I guess I have never really seen a live one.

I've seen very few King Snakes in this area. I've seen more Mole Snakes (In the King Snake Genus) than any other. Mole Snakes are really rare elsewhere in their range. For old memories, my mind is a steel trap. When I was in college, taking a Field Zoology course, the snake that was worth more to our grade was a Mole Snake. I never caught one back then but still made an A in the course. I still remember the scientific name for the Mole Snak.,
Lampropeltis caligaster rhombomaculatum. Maybe Caligaster has 2 "Ls." Down here they are easy to catch after a big rain.

I see way too many big Yellow Rat Snakes here. Usually in my hen house.

Recently had a snake expert tell me that a coral snakes nose will be black. He also said that most snakes that have a body like a broom stick are normally safe but any large body snakes are normally poisonous. By large body he said the body is thicker than the head.
