Milk snake

The milk snake is a constrictor, which means it is not venomous. It is hard to tell a milk snake from a coral snake which is venomous. The milk snake mimics the coral snake so it looks like it has a bad bite, but it actually does not. A thing to remember is on how to tell them apart, this always helps me remember: Red and black friend to Jack, red and yellow kill a fellow.
