Texas Coral Snake eating a Texas Brown Snake


Nearly stepped onto this interaction when going out to water my garden one morning, just a few weeks ago.

Though they are venomous, Texas Coral Snakes are not aggressive and generally stay out of sight. After realizing this one was having some breakfast, we left it alone and went back inside for a while. When we checked later, it had moved on.
