    We have it easy. Poisonous snakes are pretty easy to identify in the US. Triangular shaped head, thick body, vertical pupils, pits in nose, and usually pretty "aggressive" markings.
    The Aussies have to deal with stuff like this-

    Plain looking snake. Bite apparently doesn't hurt much. Deadliest venom in the world.:eek:

    ^^^Agreed. The only one I wouldn't kill is a green grass snake...

    Looks like a rat snake to me. We have a lot of those around my place. They're the good guys.... They are harmless unless they make you get jumpy and hurt yourself... They act like a bada$$ if cornered but it's just an act...

    yup, same family (Colubridae) and both considered 'good snakes'

    safe to classify them both as 'rodent snakes'

    Yeah I am not a snake person, I try to leave black garder snakes alone and the bright green tree snakes on the rare occasion I see them. Other than that they get the shovel treatment around my house.

    This one got it because he was in the shed and acting aggresive and my parents dog pens are attached to the shed. Better safe than sorry with the dogs.

    If I'm close enough to see it's eyes, I've already killed the fucher!

    waiting for the punchline......


    no correlation I'd guess, same with diamond shaped heads and other distinguished marks.

    I love the rattlesnake because it at least gives you a warning;)
