It was easing accross the driveway, heading back into my front garden area. It is DEAD now. I'm not afraid of snakes, but this one got my attention. I'm gonna try and attach a few pictures, but really do not have a clue how to do that. The pics kinda suc anyway.

Long story short, it was a freaking Coral Snake. A big - long..... Coral Snake. I knew what it was immediatly but looked it up anyway. It was a perfect match to a snake book picture that we have. It lived in my flower bed. I'm betting it is not alone. What can we do to de-snake the area. I've heard of using sulpher but am not really sure. From what I have read 27" is a pretty fair sized Coral. - Any help out there from our snakeologists. - DS

I'll send Martin the pics

I'm pretty sure I'm dealing with a BIG Coral. If I would have stretched the snake oit in the photos, I'm thinking 28-29". I preserved the snake in zip-locked ice last night, but, added it to the thash this morning. It's thawedm and vert rank, but I'll freeze it now. Martin will hopefully post the pictures soon.

J - Red on Yellow was the clincher for me, but the Eastern Coral picture in the Wildlife manual proved it. We have a tom that is a regular visitor but no regular cats. Remember my "mice ordeal"? I think we need a cat - lol

- Later, DS
