Fun Facts:

*Coral Snakes, unlike most venomous snakes, lack enlarged-rotating front fangs, and because of this, lethal bites from coral snakes are extremely rare! 

 

*The Coral Snake has one of the most potent neorotoxins. 

They're the second-most toxic snake, only trailing behind the Africa's deadly Black Mamba!

 

*The Coral Snake is in the same family as the Cobra!

Always remember: 

"Red touch yellow, kill a fellow!
Red touch black, venom lack!"
