Just about an hour ago, I went out back under my cement carport and damn near stepped on this thing. A guard light just barely illuminated the thing as I got within 2 feet of it. Looking on the internet, I see photos saying a coral snake is described as "red touches yellow" and a skarlet king snake is "red touches black"

If that's the case, I deem this one as a coral snake.

Corals always have a black nose, believe that is a King.

Nice! A coral would have more distinct color patterns with more red....

Texas Longnose for sure. We found one in our yard many years ago. Cool looking little snakes.
