  • Why are you deathly afraid of an animal that barely weighs a pound? They are good for keeping away vermin; mice, rats, insects. Very healthy for the environment. Only 4 kinds of snakes in the North America pose a threat to humans and none of them are orange. Please don't freak out and kil it, they are so misunderstood.

  • I live in south texas. I did kill it. I talked 2 my mom and she looked on internet and said she couldnt find orange snake so hopefully it was worm. Either way its dead now! Lol! Done with moving wood around 2day, hubby can do it!

  • It sounds like a snake,, I hate them too, have hubbs finish,,, you can go online and look at snake pictures to see if you can identify the type, I am from Missouri so we have black snakes, copperheads, rattlesnakes, garter snakes, but none that are orange! I would google it to make sure it is a harmless variety!
