That coral snakes are rear-fangs. I mean, most people know that they are relatives of cobras, and lots others know they are in the same group, however, I've even heard college professors refer to them as rear-fangs and "relatively harmless," when in fact, like ALL other elapids, they have short fixed front fangs and can certainly cause a dangerous bite?? Anyway, that's just something I'm wondering. By the way, your pics didn't show up on my puter, but I'm sure they were great.
