There are over 70 coral snake species worldwide, and most are found in the western hemisphere. However, genetic studies have found that the coral snake’s heritage began somewhere in Asia. Most coral snake species are small in size and rarely grow to be longer than three feet. However, some have been known to grow to be over six feet long. There are even aquatic variations with specially adapted tails for swimming!
- Scientific Name: Family Elapidae
- Characteristics: Although coral snake venom is incredibly potent, they only bite when they feel threatened. We promise this individually hand painted figurine has no interest in harming you!
- Size and Color: Measuring 23 inches long and .5 inches tall, this model is about as long as two standard sized American rulers, and as tall as a quarter stood upright. Coral snakes are always red, black, and yellow, but the actual alignment of those colors is necessary to determine the species. Remember the rhyme!
- The Coral Snake is part of the Incredible Creatures® collection.
