A few years ago, I came in to work in Florida and found a snake slithering around on the concrete floor. It was either a king snake (harmless) or a coral snake (deadly). The difference between the two is in the order of the colored rings around their body. I wasn't sure which one it was (king snakes eat rodents like mice, or other small pests), so I went to find the owner of the business. He came back, took one look, and starting running around screaming "Kill it!! Kill it!!" like a little girl. My hero...
The end result was I had to kill it, just because I didn't know which it was, and the boss was worse than useless in helping find out.

Y'all,
I grew up in fla. Lived there for 38 years and I have seen and done a lot in the state. I worked as a field biologist for a couple of years, hiked most of the Florida trail through the Ocala National Forest, paddled most of Florida's rivers. Traveled the entire navigable length of the St. Johns River and have camped at many of the state's parks from the panhandle to the Keys. I have seen only 1 diamond back rattle snake and it was in the backcountry of Wekiva Springs SP.

I have seen more cotton mouths than you can shake a stick at and countless gators. There are wild critters in most places in North America that hurt or kill people, don't let this deter you from camping.
