21. Coral Snake

Part of the cobra family, the coral snake is smaller and less aggressive than the rattler, but its venom — a neurotoxin — is more powerful. To distinguish between the coral snake and its harmless lookalike, the scarlet king snake, memorize this rhyme: “Red touch black, safe for Jack. Red touches yellow, kills a fellow.”
