While these brightly colored striped snakes are very similar in color to the non-venomous Scarlet Kingsnake, remember the old saying ““Red touches black, venom lack; red touches yellow, kills a fellow.” They are slender-bodied, and rarely grow longer than 2 to 3 feet long. Found in a variety of habitats including wooded and sandy areas, but not in extensive wetlands. It has short, fixed fangs at the front of its mouth and has a rounded black head.
