Speckled kingsnake on Chartres Street


Saw this snake warming up in the road around 6:15 a.m. I had to look up "black snake with yellow dots" to find out what he or she was and it took about one second for Google to tell me. It's a Speckled Kingsnake. They're common and not venomous. They will bite if disturbed. And they're constrictors!
