Default Red touches black, you're OK Jack; red touches yellow, you're a dead fellow

Thinking of getting my first milk snake Which species looks most like the coral snake? I know the bands are in a different order but which is closest? Pueblan looks ok to me, how much am i looking at for a hatchling?

I know there a sub species of king snake, does this mean they are cannibilistic?

Yea they are cannabalistic, not a snake to risk housing together lol.
Ive seen prices range from £50 to £120 for a hatchling pueblan, but just depends where you get it from. If your after the coral look go for an Apricot Pueblan, they have orangy bands instead of white, very cool snake imo!!
