Coral snake on pine needles at sunset
A beautiful but deadly and seldom seen snake found throughout the south east US. This snake is more closely related to species found in Asia than most of the other snakes found in this region. It is also the subject of a kids rhyme designed to warn against touching "Red touches black, alright Jack, red touches yellow, kill a fellow"
