The locals in Barra say, "Cancle" and hold to their very strong venom. All articles from apparently good sources say otherwise. They eat bugs and small lizards and can themselves be seen eaten by contestants on a show called "Fear Factor". A couple of young women wolfed some down on camera...saw the clip on YouTube or some such place while researching them. We have them in our pump-house and they get very big.

Another common misperception is that the snakes with red and black and white bands are coral snakes. Most are one form of kingsnake or another that eat mice. Coral snakes have red and yellow bands that touch.
