Coral Snake


In North America, upon seeing red, black, and yellow snakes, Erika and I have a mantra. “Red on black, friend of Jack” — a harmless King Snake; “Red on yellow, kill a fellow” — a venomous Coral Snake. I don’t know how well this mantra works in Costa Rica. I suspect this snake we encountrd in the parking lot of the Arenal Observatory Lodge’s parking lot is not good news. Someone obviously agreed and had already chopped off its head.
