We Saw a Beautiful Snake in the Yard – Nature 81

When we were going outdoor to see our plants, we saw the snake, look quite pretty. The size is not so big.

Based on GoogleID and supported by one of our neighbors, the snake is Speckled king snake.

This nake is native to the USA, and found a lot in southern states such as our state, Louisiana.

Lampropeltis holbrooki is a scientific name for Speckled king snake. The snake has a black body with small yellow-white specks. They look beautiful.

A wonderful snake for our property. Highly beneficial. We are honored to be hosting it!

The snake is immune to the venom of venomous snakes, and it will often eat venomous snakes as prey.

King snake is active during the day (diurnal). Since the snakes are predators, their diets are shrews, lizards and mice.

  8. Well is so good to have a garden on home. The snake is a curious neighbour, if you like It and is not dangerous ok. I dont know nothing about snakes. Be safe. This is the first.
    Have a nice summer. And greetings from Mallorca.

  12. As cobras são perigosas. Pelo menos a sua maioria.
    Há que ter muita atenção e cautela quando se frequentea a floresta.
    Excelente poust, minha amiga.
    Votos de uma excelente semana!
    Beijinhos.

  15. I've stumbled across these snakes before while hiking and until I was able to identify them... the experience was really scary. Knowing it isn't venomous makes it a lot more enjoyable to be around!!

  17. I am particularly respected by snakes, whatever they may be, although I think of everything in nature or almost everything if it runs its course and is not shown are harmless.
    Best regards.

  24. Hello,
    I do not mind snakes, as long as they keep their distance. Great sighting.
    Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a great weekend.

  25. The snake appears beautiful, but concealed beneath dry leaves, it could startle me to the point of a heart attack.
