What is the name of the white-black-banded snake in the pic below?

(I know its name Bungarus multicinctus, which, however, few native E speakers understand)

@oristarA,
Bungurus multicinctus is the Latin name of the many-banded krait or Taiwanese banded krait.

Fauna and flora almost always bear Latin names and this facilitates the knowledge exchange between people of different languages.

@oristarA,

It's odd how similar in appearance the banded krait, a venomous and pugnacious snake, is to the California kingsnake, one of the gentlest and most popular pet snakes.

But Latin is a dead language. Do you know how to pronounce those Latin names?
