Best Answer

A Scarlet King Snake can be extremely deadly to smaller snakes be they poisonous or non-poisonous. Since King Snakes in general are immune to the toxin of poisonous varieties of snakes, they generally consume most other snakes in their immediate vicinity thus acquiring the moniker "King of Snakes". A Scarlet King can also be deadly to small mammals such as mice or squirrel, chipmunk and shrew are also on their menu. Scarlet Kings are not deadly toward humans, with their ability to consume animals carrying diseases that can be deadly to humans, they are beneficial allies to us.
