Yes, really ... exactly what the headline says.

A gal in Florida noticed some movement in a bush and realized she was watching a brightly-colored coral snake trying to eat another snake that was dead and hanging in the bush.

While she's taking video, a wasp flies up and lands on the coral snake and hyjinks ensue.

It's sort of weird what you can witness in nature if you just look around you and stay alert.

I wonder why the wasp got all upset with the coral snake though, enough to sting it?

Of course... I mean everyone knows the helpful rhyme:

Red touches yellow, you’re a dead fellow
Red touches black, you’re ok, Jack
...
Red touches yellow AND red touches black,
Snek eats ded snek and wasp stings it’s back.

That looks like a fat wasp ... better known as a Honey Bee, in which case it gave it's life to prevent the snake it's snack.

Nature is a cold, cold bee-yatch... murder and lunacy dwell within her.

It's a Yellow Jacket. They build nests in the ground and during the extreme heat of summer they get highly aggressive. You don't have to disturb the nest for these little yellow devils to take offense and attack you. If you get within 10 feet during this heat they will attack.

We were on a job site in Fort Myers Florida. A electrician trapped a coral snake under a 5 gallon bucket .

The GC called a nearby college and they gave him a number for a snake handler that milked snakes for anti-venom .

He gave him a call and the guy didn’t want it. He said let it go they manufacture anti-venom for coral snakes in a laboratory .

Never knew they could do that with any snake until that day .

Looks like a hornet.

Interesting, but I find it strange the coral snake would try to eat A) something dead, and B) something the same size as it.

lol.

Cool though.

Southern yellow jacket. Highly aggressive little buggers. Wasp eat meat, so that is why he stung the snake. Wasp are attracted to rotting flesh, so he was probably also trying to get a bite same as the coral snake.

Snakes are opportunistic. They will eat dead things that aren't too far gone that they find in the wild; they just don't happen across the opportunity often. It's why you can get them eating frozen/thawed so easily in captivity.

The tail of the dead snake was right there by its head..... I kept wondering

when it would occur to the snake to start at the tail?

The version I know

Red on black, won't attack.
Red on yellow, kill a fellow.

The one I learned was "Red and black, friend of Jack; red and yellow, kill a fellow."

I wonder how many of them there are and if they're regional or something? It would make for an interesting language study.
