Look! Look at this freaking beautiful snake! It's a coral snake (very venomous). It's kind of a badass. And they're pretty reclusive. I've only seen one other one - in 2008, less than a mile away from this buddy. It's probably a good thing I didn't have the macro on me or else I'd currently be in the hospital.
However, I was a dumbass. I pulled one of my stupidest moves in a while. While it was slowly crawling into a rock crevice, I touched it. Hush now all of you. I can't help myself when it comes to snakes. I HAD to do it! Anyway, yeah, I got lucky. Their bite is pretty obnoxious and not the easiest to treat. But, well, now I can say I touched a coral snake and that makes me feel a bit cooler.
