Picture Of A King Snake

Picture of a King Snake by Steve Roper, illustrated by Don Whittle. This picture of a king snake is available online. As the title implies this is an adult snake and seems to be what you might call a “real snake” – the kind you might see in the movies, mostly. In fact, the Royal Navy used snakes to kill enemy ships at sea during the war.

If only it were that easy. Imagine if you had a couple of beautiful snakes as pet, one red, one yellow and two bluish. You would have a great family. The other day a lady called me and she said that her grandfather had a picture of a king snake, long handled. He had been a boat captain and had many encounters with venomous snakes.

He had six children and all six died from bites by these coral snakes. He was not able to save any of them because he was trying to save lives. The snake was brought to his funeral and he was cremated. His wife kept the picture of a king coral snake as a reminder of the danger of keeping these snakes as pets. Unfortunately there are too many incidents of deaths from bites and death from a coral snake to forget about.

I think that the message here is quite clear. It is better to stay far away from these brightly colored snakes unless you want to end up like the man in the story. The other problem with keeping pets of any kind of snakes is that they are so terribly misunderstood. The common public image of a venomous snake goes beyond what is actually portrayed on the pet trade.

Some people think that picture of a king snake is just a picture of a harmless coral snake when it is in reality the exact opposite. They can be dangerous and can cause severe problems for people if allowed to grow and breed. You must take special precautions when keeping these snakes as pets. When you see any sign of aggression of these snakes do not take any chances, contact your local animal control center right away.

King snakes are different than other snakes in that they have a “baby king” or hatchling snake within them. These baby king snakes will generally attack other snakes when they are threatened. They will do this by biting the finger of the threatened animal, so be careful if you intend to get one of these baby king snakes as a pet. They can really be a hassle if you don’t know what you are doing.
