I found this friendly creature staying overnight in my outside dryer vent pipe.  Probably wanted to keep warm and dry.  
A little more than the garden variety

Constrictors also open their mouth wide but DO NOT use venom. Why does everyone get so freaked out over simple things?

Poisonous coral snakes have a black nose. The coral king snakes do not. It has a red nose. Poisonous coral snake are much more vibrant bright colors.

It's hard to remember red against black or black against yellow, but the black nose is always black ! Back off from it.

I used to see a lot of those snakes, that resemble the poisonous coral, at the top of Priv. Jacarandas in Upper Chula Vista on the path up to the tower.  Seemed like they had established quite a colony there.
Beautiful but harmless.  Don't know if poisonous corals inhabit Mexico, in these parts, or not.

"A snake with heat-sensing pits is venomous. Triangular heads are another commonality in most venomous snakes. The rattlesnake, copperhead, and water moccasin all have arrowhead faces. If you can get close enough to see, pit vipers also have pupils that are oblong, like a slit."

Remember, even a bite from a harmless snake can lead to an allergic reaction or infection.

Remember to instil as much irrational fear of the things you don't understand, won't understand, so as mitigate the public back-lash to your pathetic phobias or whatever are among the things your mother told you not to touch. "Four legs good, two legs better!". Categorical bullshit.

Rather than argue the point, you call for censorship. Isn't one Chapala.com sufficient? This site doesn't need filtering, but you might consider some independent proof reading.

Sorry about the spelling.....I was very angry YOU are what we called a NEGAT in the Navy. Probably a very unhappy person like another above. I have no room for negative people likes you or unhappy people lñike you in my life. Either shape up or ship out.
Clean this site up .....por favor.

This little guy came out from under some soil this morning as I was digging.  Only about 25cm. long so just a baby.  I let it slither off unharmed.

Also true for human bites, but a biting human is hardly ever called "harmless".

Lot of snakes on those ships Doc?  You must have been putting into a lot of " banana ports".

As an FYI, the venom rhyme is not always reliable as per this article:
