Hello everyone. I am conducting a study on the population and reproduction of the Texas coral snake (Micrurus tener). These snakes are getting very difficult to find...specially Around these parts (western DFW).
Anyone who is willing to capture rather than kill the snakes, I am asking that you please contact me so I can study the specimen and collect any data (location, age, sex, health, etc).
I DO NOT recommend anyone touch this species of snake or get within 36" of it at any time. Please use a hook or a broom handle, etc to put it in a bucket or escape proof container.

A little about the coral snake. These snakes are diurnal meaning they are active mostly during daylight hours. Often found in rotting wood piles or heavy forested areas. That being said....they can be found anywhere including swamps and grassland areas. These snakes are EXTREMELY venomous. They are in the same family of snakes are cobras, mambas, kraits, tiapans, brown snakes, death adders, etc (elapids). If you are not confident and certain you can capture the snake without being injured, please do not attempt to do so. I normally wouldn't ask for help on something like this but these snakes are very difficult to find.

Specially if you are in the DFW area, contact me ASAP if you find one OR if you have some land that you would mind me looking through. I don't leave trash and I put back everything the way it was before I arrived. I have all the handling equipment and experience needed.

Thanks so much for your time in reading this. You may not all like snakes but they are a very important balance in our world! Without snakes, our homes and crops would be taken over by rodents and insects.

payment will depend on how far im driving, condition of the snake, how many snakes are collected, etc.
in general, from $25-$50 per snake. please keep in mind that this is for the study of these snakes and not for profit of any kind. some of them from diffrent locations will have toxicity test done to varify is anti-venom works for various locations. this will help the general public in the long run in case of a envenomation. it is also to either confirm or deny the fact that coral snakes are moreso found in populated areas/parks rather than rural areas.

Hmmm. You got permits from TPWD for this. I pretty sure it's illegal to purchase or sell native Texas wildlife.

It is my understanding that there is no Coral Snake anti-venom as of now. Last I heard there was only one maker of it and since it is in such low demand they decided it wasnt worth the expense of making it anymore. The current U.S. supply was extended beyond its original experation date to the max allowed by law and is now expired for good. Correct me if I am wrong but I studied this in depth a year or so ago and thats what I came up with.

incorrect. partially anyways. anti-venom for micrurus in texas (or the rest of the country) is used very rarely. anti-venom does have a shelf life as well (per the USDA...its still good after the fact). but no way no how would anti-venom for the most deadliest snake in the nation be done away with and/or production stopped. there is always anti-venom for this snake. face facts.....little kids pick up snakes all the time. all it takes is a kid to pick up a "kingsnake" that turns out to be a coral snake and gets a bite. that kid dies unless there is anti-venom. alot of it is made in south america although i do believe jim at the kentucky reptile zoo also aquires it for the production of serem.
there have yet to be any hardcore studies done on the toxicity from diffrent locals of this species. this is why im doing it. take for example the mojave rattlesnake. its venom goes from common hemotoxic properties to have both hemotoxic and neurotoxic properties as well as cytotoxins in some locals. i believe that is the mojave green from western texas.

i would have to doubt your getting that much for a coral snake....specially a wild caught one. i know just about everyone in the reptile trade industry (venomous mainly) and even the retail "petshop" price on a coral is not that high. if you have a long term captive coral that is feeding on rodents, im sure you could pull that price all day!

**just to add....this thread is not a discussion on how much you can get for your coral snake. either you are intrested in helping me or you are not. if you choose not to help, please refrain from posting here. this is a serious matter and i really dont have the time or the want to be led on.

I will take your word for it since you are obviously more into snakes than me. However I could post dozens of links that claim all the Coral Snake anti-venom expired last year and there is no more in the works.

I am sure you are right and if you are there sure is alot of mis-information out there surrounding this anti-venom.

i can give you a list of all the anti venom in the country currently. i can include names and locations of it as well. believe me....its here!!
there are 3 types of coral snakes in this country. many more in south and central america. the eastern coral snake (florida mainly) is alot more abundant than any other. alot of the venom for that species (flaviceps i believe is the latin name) will work for the texas coral snake. problem is....not often is it used so not much is known about how it works on every locale apecific coral. im sure we can go on and on all day....point is, the anti-venom is not what i am directly after. after all, not many people are bitten by this snake. i just want to know if the venom varies in properties from diffrent regions within and outside of the same species. ive never done a study of this magnitude before. i have run studies on the genus Bitis to see just how far apart gaboons and rhino vipers are!

that being said.....again.....its not like there are stockpiles of coral snake anti-venom. but to not have any at all is suicidal. a bite will happen. although only about 2% of venomous bites in this country from wild snakes (not captives) are coral snakes. bites do happen. this snake is a elapid. the venom glands are little and fangs are very tiny. it takes a good bite from a coral for it to be serious. but again....bites do happen. if ati-venom wasnt available then, deaths would have occured. there is millions of people in the country. surely a handful of them find and handle a coral snake each year.

Do you need an exotic controlled permit for a native snake? thought that was only for python, boas, etc

Sounds like an interesting study. I would post this on the TFF as well but in both classifieds and off topic. I realize you may feel like you just put up a notice in an insane asylum.

Sorry I can't help you because I've never actually had the opportunity to see one in the wild.

I know of a guy that got bit by one...it messed him up real bad. he was lucky it was on its toe and they controlled it early enough. He was in an old cabin and had his foot under a cabnit...he said he felt something moving but didnt notice it was a snake till he looked down and it was knawing on his toe...

i did want to address the comment above about permits. snakes in texas are considered non-game wildlife. they do not require a permit to capture or trap.
that being said....it IS against state law to capture them from a public place or on or along a public roadway. you may also not capture any protection animals (snakes or not). from private land doesnt require a permit. i do have the permit to posses and interstate transport or non-protected venomous or non-venomous snake...includeing non-native venomous from any country as long as that snake is not protected in its country of origin.

permits for native venomous are not required. hence the reason rattlesnake roundups are still legal.
that being said.....you cannot own a canebreak/timber rattlesnake in this state because it is a protected species. i believe the texas lyre snake is also a protected venomous snake in texas. the rules on canebreak rattlesnakes are a little cloudy. ive heard (but not confirmed) that if you purchase a canebreak rattlesnakes from a source outside of texas, you can own the snake in texas as long as you can prove that the snake was captive born for three generations.

coral snakes are not normally out at night. thats not to say they cant be though.
once thing is very clear....they are for sure not the snake to get bit by. they have nearly the same properties in their venom as most asian cobras. not nearly as bad due to the amount of venom injected (search for LD50 if you wanna know more about how potent they are).

thats awsome!! sounds like you didnt harm the snake and i appreciate that. the snake did nothing wrong. they were here first anyways. but haveing kids, pets, etc etc....we must move them from time to time.
be very very careful with timbers. they are one of the most toxic rattlesnakes there are. i believe there is a local specific group of timber/canebreaks on georgia that said to be the most toxic snakes in the country! even mark o'shea on the discovery channel once was asked what was the worst bite he ever receieved (out of many from cobras, etc etc)...he said the canebreak rattlesnake! he claimed it really almost killed him even with treatment. word of caution!!!

eack one of those snakes above are diffrent species. im sure they are found on some islands but they are not restricted to any islands that im aware of. that being said.....the first picture is a white lip pit viper (trimeresurus albolabris). there is a subspecies of that snakes called the wetar island tree viper. same snake basicly but the weatr island version is bright yellow and comes from the wetar island.

Yeah i read up on them a good bit. Some of the pictures are pretty scary...but at the same time they are considered one of the most docile of the rattlesnakes and try to avoid conflict more than bite

make sure your not thinking of bothrops insularis (spelling). those are EXTREMLY rare and are confined to only one island!! aka....the golden lancehead! there are only 2 of them that i have ever heard of to be in captive collections. i believe they are in a zoological collection in europe somewhere.

i believe the wetar island is trimeresurus insularis. very close in name but completly diffrent countries and genus'

I see you have a Gaboon Viper, buddy of mine had one growing up. I didn't know how dangerous that snake is until college. Very cool.

I have only seen 2 coral snakes in my life, both dead. I will keep a lookout.

This is my point. I go out of my way to look for snakes and have only found one coral. On a lady's front porch on the Guadalupe. I didn't find it she did and wanted it removed after she beat it to death with a broom.

its my point as well. they are very hard to find even if your looking. ive come across a few but i thought id post here to see if some of you guys happen to come across one on your hunts, in your yards, etc etc. just trying to expand my reach and speed things up. i of course will continue to look on my own but the more data i can collect from diffrent regions, the more accurate my finding will be.
bottom line....they are next to impossible to find. sometimes people wander upon them but searching for them hardly never gives results.
they are normally found after rains. often found on roadways while cross the street. that being said....i cant collect from a public roadway or ditch. texas law prohibits it. believe it or not...ive passed up a few of the (and other snakes) while traveling because its illegal. my luck the texas parks and wildlife will be hiding a tree costume in the shrubs with a ticket book. lol.

Filenamex, was suggested already that you post this on the TFF. That may not be a bad idea if you haven't already. Reason I say this is, years ago I met a couple of guys out fishing in Port Aransas one time that said they were making a killing catching & selling coral snakes that they were catching in the sand dunes there in Port A. I asked them if they were Milk Snakes or really Coral Snakes & they swore up & down that they were all Coral Snakes, & quite a few of them. Just a tip, that's all. You may find sime ol' salty dog on the island that knows someone.....never know? Good luck though, I kinda like snakes too. grin

Little girl got killed by one at the Micky Ds in Nac, there was quite a few of them in the balls on the playground. We have a lot of them, just have to wait until late summer to find them when the cattle have mowed the pastures down.

I saw a coral snake at my lease about 2 years ago!!! It left me alone and I left it alone, (besides I didn't want to scare the deer about 10yds away)!!!

I've been following your thread to determine your motives for wanting live coral snakes. I catch corals in my yard often (mostly summer and early fall) and have seen five this year alone (Caught three, one got away, found a dead one). I normally release them in the woods away from the house,or give them to my uncle who's a leather craftsman. They make nice hatbands! These are found on my private property and probably from a large brood. I'm thinking there's an subterr. den right under me.
I'm in the central TX hill country and currently have a live coral I caught today, aprox. 18".
I'll certainly sell it to you for your research, which is commendable. Price= $40.00 firm.
If you're truly interested, message me back.
