    Just killed what we think is a Mojave green, but I'm not sure about the head shape...my understanding is that more triangular is venemous whereas less so may be non-venemous.  No rattle, but very VERY heavy green coloring. Any help for more certain identification?

      sagebrush_mama, I'm not sure what type of snake it is but another way you can tell if it is venomous is by looking at the scales below the anus-if they are single rows, then venomous,if double rows then non-venomous. I hope Randy answers soon -I'm really curious. What part of the country was the snake found?

      Randy emailed me telling me he got banned and asked if I could pass on this message to you;

      "Please tell her this snake looks to be a non-venomous species if the shape of the head is any indication."

        Thanks...that seems to be the consensus...not poisonous...green is bad out here, though, and those Mojave Greens are no laughing matter.  Sorry to hear about the banning...thanks for the help!

      Howdy!  I've been textbrokering, which is far more profitable than my hubs, which are about as dead as that thar snake!

          As long as there aren't any more of those snakes, I think it will be good.

        360 hubs and they're all dead? You just convinced me not to waste any more time writing hubs on here.

          Every now and then one will bounce back, but when I get my hopes up, they are quickly dashed...I've unpublished plenty...migrating a few here and there.
