On time a looked down and a red and black snake was gliding over my boot. Could not remember if it was a coral snake or the non-poisonous king snake. Found out later it was the king snake. But was scared until he went on his way. Another time I did see a rattlesnake, but it only had one rattle and from what I was told it was still a baby and not deadly. Kept my distance though
wow that would be scary,red touching yellow is bad i think that is how to tell.
we came in contact with this brown snake with red and black and tannish color,near our fishing place. i spent hours googling never found the.type of snake it was.
Red next to black friend of jack
Red next to yellow kills a fellow
Regardless they are still pretty snakes. As somebody else pointed out God prob made it that way so you can see it clearly
thats a good poem i would probably freak and not remember it if next to the snake but..,interesting.
Yeah I remember saying is it that way or the other way?
Being that I am simply fascinated with snakes in general and own a pet 9 ft Burmese Python, I have never seen/encountered a snake that I was afraid of, venomous or otherwise.
I was in Papua New Guinea in the early 80s and went with some locals to their garden out in the bush. I heard one of the men yell and then he came into view with a snake draped over his machete. He had chopped it nearly in half. It was called a death adder which are among the most venomous snakes in the world. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acanthophis
wow that would be scary, i have heard of the adder snakes,i am fortunate not to have seen one.
This snake can go from strike position, to strike, to injecting venom and back to strike position in 0.15 seconds. I just read that in Wikipedia. Fastest snake strike in the world.
wow that doesn't give u much time to react at all.scary.
The most frightening snake I have ever encountered was a coral snake in Florida. As soon as I spotted the most colorful slithering I thought to myself how God-awful for our Creator to paint such conspicuous stand-out coloring. There is no way that this slithering could camouflage itself anywhere except perhaps in a jellybean filled container. What an outstanding snake indeed! How frightening to think about the extent God has provided for us to protect us...
yes this snake would be hard not to spot,Is this snake poisonous?
Yes it is significantly poisonous; however, it is not a viper. Thus, it has to chew on you to release its poison...
Again it gives one time to break away before the fatal poison gets in you...
The Australian Brown Snake was prevalent around my place of work, an isolated radio shack in Central New South Wales in Australia back in the early 1960s. We had them in the toilet out back, then one in the porch we had to traverse to come in and out, and even in the radio receiver room, all over the same summer. One even got run over by an aircraft on the runway but wasn't killed. I had to go out to try to kill it. Very dangerous. As it was, a fire-fighter killed it with a wide bladed shovel (quick as they are, they can't dodge a shovel)
I've also seen red-belly and yellow-belly black snakes in the Australia Bush. They're poisonous too. But not as deadly as the big Brown.
Biggest snake I ever saw was a python. That was in New Guinea in 1964. It was so big that on the narrow trail we were driving on, one end of it was in the jungle on one side of the road whilst its other end was still coming out of the jungle on the other. I'd guess around 25 feet or so. We were experiencing a thunder storm at the time. I felt the bump as we drove over it in the pouring rain.
Cobra snake was the most frightening. It just fell from a coconut tree and almost hitting my head. It was the worst day of my life.

A Monacled albino cobra is on the loose in Southern California. http://news.msn.com/us/search-on-for-de … californiaAuthorities think the snake escaped from captivity and the owner has not yet been found. Why would anyone own a venomous snake? I have read so many news articles...

Why would one hate a fly for flying around the room? Who would hate a mosquito for eating? Who would hate a snake for defending it's self? Who would hate themselve's for dying?
