Louisiana Milk Snake pictures (Lampropeltis triangulum amaura).
The Louisiana Milk Snake pictured here is named from the myth that it sucks milk from cows. It most often can be found in standing dead trees in bottomland hardwood forests. Though they are not poisonous, they mimic the Coral Snake. You can tell the difference because the red bands are next to the black bands, rather than the yellow-red pattern of the Coral Snake.
They grow to 16-22 inches.
