Have you ever heard the rhyme: “red and black, friend of Jack. Red and yellow, kills a fellow?” This limerick exists to help people distinguish between a venomous coral snake, whose bite can be very serious, and harmless counterparts like the scarlet king snake.
Scientific Name: Family Elapidae
Characteristics: Although coral snake venom is incredibly potent, they only bite when they feel threatened. We promise this individually hand painted figurine has no interest in harming you!
Size and Color: Measuring 23 inches long and .5 inches tall, this model is about as long as two standard sized American rulers, and as tall as a quarter stood upright. Coral snakes are always red, black, and yellow, but the actual alignment of those colors is necessary to determine the species. Remember the rhyme!
The Coral Snake is part of the Incredible Creatures® collection.
