ABSTRACT
Mud Snake, or Hoop Snake, the name of two species of glossy, bright-colored, nonpoisonous snakes of the southeastern United States. Other names are stinging snake and horn snake. The names hoop snake and stinging snake originated from a false belief that the snake rolled like a hoop at great speed, killing both animals and plants with its stinging tail. The hornlike tip on the snake's tail is harmless.
