Thats a powerful image there,is it based on a real snake?
Looks a bit tricky to carve
Yes, it looks like a coral snake. They have a pattern of alternating red, yellow, and black bands. In North America red and yellow bands touching
means poisonous. We have them in Arizona.
Snakes that mimic corals have alternating red, black, and yellow bands. Red and black bands touching
means they are not venomous.
Children are taught a mnemonic to help remember which to avoid:
Red and yellow kills a fellow.
Red and black, safe from attack.
