Safari LTD | Incredible Creatures ~ CORAL SNAKE BABY
There are over 70 coral snake species worldwide, and most are found in the western hemisphere. However, genetic studies have found that the coral snake’s heritage began somewhere in Asia. There’s actually a well-known rhyme to determine whether or not a snake is a coral snake, and therefor potentially dangerous. The limerick is: “red and black, friend of Jack. Red and yellow, kills a fellow.”
