Default Time to burn it down.

A few weeks ago while me and a buddy were getting ready to move a feeder and some cameras at my place in Warren, this guy decided to slide out from under my camper. I was putting my .45 on my hip at the door of my truck when he said ďkill that coral snakeĒ. I laughed and was like yeAh right, shut up. When I looked over it was about a foot away from me making his way to the wood pile. Itíll never happen again, but I pulled my pistol and 2 shots had his head off. Needless to say Iím burning the whole camper and wood pile down.

That is the only venomous snake I wont kill but will relocate. Pretty docile unless agitated.

No deaths attributable to Coral Snake bites have been reported since 1967. They must chew to inject venom. They are not pit vipers with folding fangs.

Just to put in perspective how much danger you were in.... lol

Actually, Inocenio Hernandez-Hernandez died of a coral snake bite in 2006 in Florida.

I should also add that if bitten, there's not antidote here in the US. The treatment is to put you in a coma with a machine breathing for you in hopes it passes.

I don't generally kill snakes, but with a little one, I could see being swayed to kill a venomous one.

I ran across my first coral in SHNF last weekend. Beautiful snakes.
