RE: CONFUSION...VENOM IMMUNITY

From what research I have done in the days past since my last post, I have found that it is not exactly a specific snake's venom that lampropeltis are immune to, but the fact that they have an overall immunity to hemotoxic(spelling?) venom of pit vipers. But this doesn't explain the reason why eastern coral snakes have been found inside kingsnakes, and why south american coral snakes have been found inside some milksnakes. I guess the only thing you could do to test the theory would be to put let a black milk consume a copperhead, and see what happens.
