Nancy Boatwright was taking her dog out for an evening walk, and when she returned, this scarlet king snake was approaching her garage. Boatwright encouraged the non-venomous snake to head toward the grass simply by standing between it and the garage. A coral snake has similar coloring to a scarlet king snake. To help remember whether a snake is poisonous, think of this rhyme: “Red on yellow, kill a fellow. Red on black, won’t hurt jack.” Boatwright has lived in Quail Hollow for 33 years and also has seen deer, rabbits, racoons, opossums, pigs, turkeys and other critters.
