HOUSTON TX – ‘Watch your step out there!”
Redditor Christian Seehausen wrote out to alert his fellow Houstonians about a rare coral snake sited near a trail he was traveling through in Memorial Park.
Seehausen posted the picture saying: “this was just a foot or two off the trail, right next to a bench on the Inner Loop trail near the Nature Center.”
According to Texas Parks and Wildlife, coral snakes are one of four types of venomous snake species within Texas and are typically non-aggressive unless triggered but its bite can be deadly.
The snake can be identified by its small mouth and red, yellow, and black ordered stripes.
