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

fella i'm workin with on a house on the edge of town here in Seadrift caught a 31 1/2 incher last week just off the front porch. after talkin to a few folks around here, come to find out, they are fairly common here. freaked me out as we have had several episodes with snakes in and around the house here on the edge of Seadrift. killed a copperhead in my dog's pen about a month ago. watch out, those corals are deadly. and yea I always thought they never got over 24". WRONG that one this guy caught (and has since killed) was pretty plump too. about the diam. of one of those fat pencils!
