The only time I came face to face with a snake in nature was at an inn on the coast of the state of Bahia.

I don’t know if this was a real coral snake, which is venomous, or a fake one, which only pretends to be venomous in order to avoid predators and boring people.

Just in case, I stayed away from her and left the bedroom door locked.

Good view of the M on his/her forehead!
One of our dearly departed kitties had “false eyes,” so when he closed his eyes, the fur above made it look like they were open, sort of like those moths or butterflies with the markings.
He had that M pattern, too.
Does yours get that effect?

The “eyes”? Not really.

This isn’t my cat, but looks pretty similar:


If you squint you can see how the markings above the eyes look also like eyes. It was very trippy the first time we noticed it.

I live just north of coral snake range in the southern US, but in elementary school I still learned a mnemonic for identifying a true coral snake: “Red on black is a friend of Jack. Red on yellow will kill a fellow.” So if that little bit of folk wisdom holds true in Brazil, the one in your photos is an imposter.

Yup.

I think it’s better treating them all as If they were all real coral snakes.

We have to admit that these color patterns are very beautiful.

White squirrel at my mother’s bird feeder. Not an albino based on the eye color.

New family member this week. We named her “Ripley” because

  1. Strong female character
  2. Easier to fit on a tag than rival tourist trap “Madame Tussauds”
  3. Still working through that destructive puppy phase

I hope so, but it kinda sticks out.
