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?
Yay!! Randy Godwin now has 203 fans...stalkers...ummm...followers!If you haven't "met" Randy yet or read his great hubs, do so! He has a great sense of humor and knows a lot about a spectrum of topics.
my dog has been bitten by a snake. it was over 2mtrs long and black on top with a yellow/pale...underside. do red bellied black snakes sometimes not have the red pigmentation because it did look like one.
