A. King snakes and coral snakes relied on similar food sources that contributed to their unique coloring.

C. Coral snakes mated with king snakes often enough to produce another species of king snake with the red, black, and yellow.
D. Overproduction of offspring increased the likelihood that the genetic mutation leading to these bands would spontaneously occur.
