It's a counterfeit venomous snake. If you think all snakes are venomous, all drugs are trying to kill you.

I'm not a herpetologist, and I don't know any because I've never had herpes.

Also, I don't know what kind of snake that is.

Nobody's going to comment on adding another 8 years to Pfizer's patent?

Let's just give up right now.

Patent reform apparently means extend patents indefinitely.

And while we're at it, let's just make copyrights permanent too.

Subby, I think that was the point.

If you don't know snakes, you could mistake a poisonous one for a non-venomous snake.

Just like with counterfeit pills.

The coral snake is the one being mimicked. The King snake is the "well-known mimic."
Then again, at least two of you got that wrong, so maybe it's not as well known as we'd like to think.

The false corals he mentioned are probably not a good example to have used. The first one is also mildly venomous, and is from SA. The species of coral snakes local to it are different than ours.
In North America, all the other snakes that look like corals are non-venomous and likely do benefit from looking like they do.

Funny enough, the wiki on the coral snake contradicts the wiki on Erythrolamprus aesculapii and says the opposite.. that false corals gain benefit from mimicking the more venomous true corals.

I spent several weeks in Wenatchee National Forest, which is in western Washington, a few years back. I saw/heard an enormous number of rattlesnakes. Most of the time they were on the trail and went away before anyone got within 20 feet or so. The rattling sound is a little creepy, but I didn't see anyone get bitten. Some googling seems to indicate that there is no such thing as a non-venomous rattlesnake.

There's no reason to be afraid of them as long as you keep an eye out and don't step on them or let them into your tent, but they are there.

This is true, Wenatchee Forest is technically Western Washington. I should have said non-mountainous regions of Western Washington, sea-level, Puget Sound, etc.
