No poisonous snakes here in Delaware but wife is deathly afraid of them.
If I can catch them, I remove them from the property.
Funny, spiders give me the creeps and I kill any that I find in the
house. They don't bother my wife.
When I was a kid, I put a small garter snake in an empty bag of M&M's
and gave them to another kid that hated snakes. He must have run a block.
You got 75%, Oren :) Coral snakes don't have triangular heads and their
pupils are round...kissing cousins to cobras, toxin of both is neurotoxic
rather than hemotoxic as in the three vipers you mentioned.
They are shy snakes, like to hide indecaying organic matter like compost
piles; when we had a mulch pile,we always kept an eye out when turning it.
They are pretty too; unfortunately they look much like king snakes
(unfortunate because the kings are mistaken for corals).
Or more specifically a juvenile Eastern Yellow-bellied Racer. As pictured
