Snake Scare

After Hurricane Irma passed through my neighborhood, the screens on our back porch were torn down. Living in a wild life preserve and on a lake I expected to see nature traveling on my lanai floor. This creature was pointed out to us by our brave guardian cat, King Pelu. He was sitting, staring into the corner. We had no idea what was there. On closer inspection, my husband saw this tail and, then the head of a very long and creepy looking snake. We were told it’s poisonous. I suppose it’s the reason our cat was just staring. I quickly took these two photos while screaming and running in the opposite direction. I was saved by the two men in my life: my hubby and my cat.

If you know anything about snakes, could you tell me what type this is and if it’s dangerous?

  1. Sure looks like a King snake to me which are often mistaken for Coral snakes. The Eastern Coral snake is red, black and yellow. There’s an old rhyme we learned as kid that goes “black on yellow, watch that fellow. Black on red, have no dread.

    • Thank you for the information, Henry. I’m not a fan of snakes. I wouldn’t go near one.
      But, I appreciate knowing what it might have been. Thank you for visiting and leaving your informative comment
      and helpful rhyme.

    • I don’t think it was there too long. Our cat is a good hunter. He would have found him eventually. I think the cat knew he was poisonous. He never tried to bite it. I’m happy about that. Eeekkk … snakes are creepy. 😩 I’m glad I didn’t have to get rid of it. Guess I’ll keep hubby. LOLOL
