Milk snake

No.

Not this milk snake, Lampropeltis triangulum hondurensis, which originates from Central America and whose name derives from the myth that it drinks milk from grazing cows.


But this equally eye-catching one, found on the Tesco shelves in Terenure, Ireland.


I know which one I'd rather face.

After all, the milk snake is harmless to humans.

Unlike the packaging design which could scar you for life.
