Coral Snake

Micrurus tener

Description:

A series of black, yellow, and red bands that completely encircle the body, with the red bands only touching adjacent yellow bands. Anterior portion of the head is black and the red bands of the body are not entirely red, with specks of black pigment found within each red band. No red bands found on the head or on the tail, these areas only have yellow and black bands.

Habitat:

I spotted it near the water valve, But the surrounding landscape is a mixture of lawn, rocky and wooded areas.
