This article shows the reader the difference between a life, and death situation. Mother nature created many look alikes, some may even call them mimics, but the difference is substantial. For example The common, and harmless scarlet kingsnake. It's vibrant red, yellow and black stripes catch your eye! But can you make the fatal mistake of approaching an eastern coral snake?
