Do you know what this is?

Look what I found attached to my boot while doing this (see below). A different type of Florida hydraulics.

LOL... I didn't know the Electro answer, I called the property manager and axed.

I'll wait for some responses from the hydrologists, or do you mean the snake?

Man I can't wait for my wife and I to get out to God's country where you are.

Red touches yellow it will kill a fellow. Red touches black, it's a friend of jack.

Coral Snakes will kill your ace, but red touches yellow.

Snakes are not a issue up north, all harmless on the west side. When we get down to the deep desert in a few weeks, we'll be on the lookout for not only snakes, but these little dears:
