Micrurus fulvius, the Eastern coral snake;
Marion county, Florida (21 October 2017).
Up close with an Eastern coral snake, a fairly common yet reclusive venomous species in the American southeast. Though it certainly does pack a potent neurotoxic venom, the Eastern coral snake is far from aggressive and spend much of its time hidden somewhat from the surface world. When they are faced by a human, their primary instinct is to get the hell of out of dodge.
