Scarlet Milk Snake, Scarlet King Snake
Main Park Road, Everglades National Park, Miami-Dade County, FloridaMarch 14, 2021
Scarlet Kingsnake (Lampropeltis elapsoides)
At the time I saw and then photographed this beautiful snake on the road, I thought it was another Scarletsnake, a similar-looking species I had seen nearby. Only a few days later when I was looking at my photos more closely did I realize it was the other nonvenomous coralsnake mimic in the area.
