refresher course ,,,,The coral snake has a black nose and red bands touching yellow bands.
red on black ok for jack .... yellow on black a poisonous fellow .... thanks . but when in doubt I leave be
Exactly. A coral snake has a head of black as well as in head of red, go ahead and head of black, stay back. The scarlet snake which mimics the coral snake also has a yellowish belly while the coral snake has solid bands around it. The king snake and milk snake varieties which mimic the coral snake also have solid bands, but in a different sequence. The yellowish bands are also much more prominent on the harmless mimics. The western coral snake does have slightly wider yellowish bands, but it also is considerably less venomous than its eastern cousin and no deaths have ever been officially certified for a western coral snake. It is believed that the death rate from untreated coral snake bites are about 10%. This two minute poison myth is complete nonsense. There is no snake in the world that will kill a human that fast unless the human dies from fright rather than the bite.

I told her we need to communicate better, if she wants sex then pet my snake once. If she is not in the mood, pet my snake 50 times.

While the claim that Australia is home to the ten most deadly snakes in the world is rather dubious, one cannot underestimate the danger many Australian snakes pose. It is likely the only country on earth where a majority of its snakes are venomous and some of them do qualify among the top ten most deadly in the world.

I guess it depends on how you define 'most deadly'.
We have the winner of the world's most poisonous competition, the Inland Taipan.
I think 8 out the world's top 10 most poisonous snakes reside here.

But for most deadly as in most people killed by, I don't think Australian snakes top that list.

believe that the sea snake is ounce for ounce the venom is the fastest and most potent ...

why because in the sea prey swims away and the snake isn't a bloodhound

I happen to like snakes too, I think it was the warm feeling I had to a poisonous black snake that prevented it biting me, even though it could of killed me. Some australians also have pythons as pets,like in US, there was a snake shop in adelaide that sold pythons as pets. There very graceful movers, elegant almost if you can appreciate the beauty of snakes. There really is no issue with snakes in australia,even though we have the most poisonous snakes in world as there are none in the cities, except occasional one found in new outersuburbs. But there are professional snake catchers in australia who are just a phone call away.Its a given, that snake encounters happen in the bush,moreso if you go bush of track, then your gambling with your life,best to keep to tracks and roads, which most snakes avoid, but if you encounter a killer species, simply walk around it and will not harm you,thye attack in self defence. Most of us respect our wildlife,except for the heroes and hoons and some guntriggerhappy farmers who like to kill them. Snakes have been in australia over 100000 years much longer than aborigines even.Snakes keep rats and mice numbers under control. without snakes australia would have a plague of mice and rats.Some snakes are shy of human contact and are not aggressive aty all. The aborigines respect the snake too,they lived side by side with them, though many were killed by snakes before they learned to respect them, there dream legend involved the snake creator, as the snake does have the power of death.In australia there are around 15 snakes that can kill you,in different ways. us has what one or 2 at most the rattlesnake and coral.

Very well said. You can add water moccasins to the list of snakes that can kill you under exceptional conditions and not all rattle snake species are considered deadly. There have been extremely rare cases where copperhead bites have been fatal, usually due to an unusual allergic reaction to the venom. Eastern coral snakes are not as deadly as thought by most with a death rate of roughly 10% for untreated bites. Deaths from the two other coral snake species are nearly unheard of in the U.S.
