Fact of the Day: King Snake

Kingsnakes probably are called as such because they often eat other snakes including ones with venom. They are not venomous themselves and they are immune to the venom of most snakes.

Venomous or not, I'd probably faint if I came upon one by accident.

We went to a reptile expo once and saw all these awesome varieties of snakes...I don't think I'd keep them as pets, but they're pretty cool creatures:)

So they're a predictor of their own kind...cannibalism?
I'd name it Hannibal haha (if I owned one).

Has the same coloration as the Sea Snakes seen here
in tropical Australia and the islands of the tropics and
they are VERY deadly.

I thought they were poisonous, or are those coral snakes? I don't know my reptiles.

SNAKES...I have a saying on my blog sidebar that states how I feel about them...
"I'm afraid of small snakes...
big snakes...
and sticks that look like snakes..."
