While hiking in the woods you're bitten by a snake lying in the brush. Before it slithers away you note that the snake's color pattern is red, black, yellow. Should you be overly concerned?

What is this "woods" you speak of?

Red touching black, or red touching yellow?
"Red on Black, friend of jack"
"Red in Yellow, kill a fellow"
Coral snakes, I believe, are the dealt ones.
Mimicking them are Milk and other types.

I learned it as
"red on black venom lack, red on yellow kill a fellow."

Rattle snakes aren't red and yellow - they are tanish brown

When I was in Rec centers or nature trail yours they always said the most dangerous snakes have red or yellow on them.

I dont think that there is a standard saying for the coral snake pattern. I dont think a single one in the comments so far is the same

Red on yellow, kill a fellow. Red on black, venom lack.
Coral/King snakes, right?

You should not, more than likely its the non-poisonous king snake. Coral snakes are pretty rare in the wild.

On the plus side, coral snakes don't have fangs at the front of their heads. If you get bit by a coral snake, it because you were playing with it.
