Coral Snake!

"Red to yellow, kill a fellow; red to black, venom lack" .  That's a rhyme taught to Florida school children to help them identify coral snakes, a very deadly venomous snake.  But thankfully, your chances of being bitten by one are very small.  Their mouths are too small to grab onto much of anything, except something like the webbing between your fingers or toes.

Having dogs, I'd be very concerned about one of our dogs sniffing it and then getting bit on the lip.

I'm grateful that Bleecker doesn't have coral snakes.  I'll stick with bears, coyotes, and Sasquatches.
