    Default Off Subject - What kind of snake is this?

    What kind of snake is this? Located in West Tennessee.
    Before some of you freak....I ran over it in the yard and didn't see it.

    I say it is a corn snake or milk snake. A friend says its a king snake.

    Somebody should now.

    Looks like a King Snake. King's and Coral's look a lot alike with the same colors but there is a rhyme you can remember. It has to do with which colors are touching.
    Coral: Red touch yellow, kill a fellow.
    King: Red and black, friend of Jack.

    I believe that's a King Snake. That's a good snake. He'll help you out with mice and other pests around the yard. I doubt he'll be much help now :D.

    King snakes feed on other snakes. Very helpful to have around. They shouldn't give you any problems.

    DEADEYE is correct, that is a red milk snake and it is in the king snake family, the scarlet king snake is the one that is commonly mistaken as a coral snake that the rhyme applies to. The pattern of the red milk snake is more like blotches while the scarlet king has well defined bands

    I saw a small (12" -14") snake that looked similar to that swimming in one of the coves here in Indiana at Raccoon Lake about a month ago when the water was way up.
    I only fish The Coon cause that's where I keep my toon.

    That is one you want in your yard for sure. I have seen one of the king snakes ever year for about 5 years now and like him being here as they will keep the bad snakes away. The one I have is the one that has the little yellow dots all over him. First saw him when he as just about a foot long or a little more. He is about 4'-5' long now.

    Too bad you killed him before you knew it.
