Friday Photo - Coral Snake / Kingsnake Bicycle Rack

Snake identification bicycle rack
This week's photo comes from a blog entitled: A Front Seat View: Cross Country on a Volae Recumbent. The Florida bicycle rack shown above not only holds bikes, but also provides education on snake identification. The left half is a harmless scarlet kingsnake. The right half is a venomous eastern coral snake (It's in the cobra family). To tell them apart, just remember this little rhyme:
Red next to yellow kills a fellow,
Red next to black is a friend to Jack
