Just sharing some pics of a coral snake. It was rescued from a cat.

Sorry if they aren't the best quality, couldn't get the little bugger to say cheese.

Thanks, we usually only get browns around here as well, so i thought that this guy was kinda special.
I have also come across a few blind snakes, people confuse them with baby browns and ring me in a panic

Naxx,

"Coral snake" is only a common name.

The "Australian Coral snake" is Brachyurophis australis

The "North American Coral snake" is Micrurus fulvius

Naxx,

That old saying only works for the 2 genera of North American Coral Snakes, is Central and South America it loses any conviction....eg M spixii etc etc

Cheers,
Scott
