Snakes alive!

It's not Titanoboa, but this 2-foot coral snake came out to enjoy the warm temperatures last week.

Deep grasses provide plenty of cover for these slithery creatures, both friendly and dangerous.

The Hillins in Indian Waters spotted this fellow Friday, March 30.

Coral snakes are venomous but cases of humans being bitten are rare.

How to tell the coral snake from it's similarly colored mimic?

Just remember this ditty: Red on black, venom lack; Red on yellow, kill a fellow.
