Here is an interesting bit of trivia I learned today. The saying goes, “Red touch Yellow, Kill a fellow. Red touch Black, Friend of Jack. Well, since Arizonans like to be different, i.e. “Department of Game and Fish” instead of “Fish and Game” and this critter who goes against the above saying. He is the Sonoran Shovelnose Snake. But before you get your hatchet out, take a closer look. The Coral Snake (poisonous but not killed anyone in Arizona) has a black head. the Shovelnose’s head is multi-colored and his stripes don’t go all the way around his body.
