The coral snake has a very flashy and colorful look. This snake is decorated with a combination of red, yellow, and black stripes. When it comes to venomous snakes, a good rhyme to use is, “If red touches yellow, you’re a dead fellow. If red touches black, you’re okay Jack”.
Its actually pretty difficult to find a coral snake. For being so colorful, these snakes like to spend a lot of time underground. Coral snakes don't normally climb trees or shrubs, and they don't spend a lot of time above ground. The best time to find a coral snake is
in the spring and fall.
However, if you do come across a coral snake, keep your distance. If this snake lifts and curls its tail, you can expect it to strike at any moment!
