I have a few questions about the venom immunity of lampropeltis. Are they only resisitant to the venom of NATIVE pit-vipers? At first that's what I thought, but now I've read about kings eating eastern coral snakes. Let's take a black milk for example (they're my favorite milk) and an eastern king (my favorite king). According to the rules of lampropeltis venom immunity to native pit-viper species, a black milk could eat a bothrops asper (small one, mind you) and an eastern king could take a copperhead with no adverse affects to their overall health? What about if you tried to feed the copperhead to the black milk, and the bothrops to the eastern king? Would someone PLEASE clarify this for me?!?!?!
