Are All Snakes Venomous?
Apparently some snakes are venomous, but it is interesting that not all are dangerous to humans. Most snakes are shy and would rather run away or hide quietly than bite someone.
Not all snakes are venomous, but even nonvenomous snakes are subject to strike if they feel frightened or sense danger.

How to distinguish a Venomous and Non-Venomous Snake?
There are no universal distinguishing features that separate venomous from non-venomous snakes. People must learn to identify the dangerous species of snakes in their areas or the areas they plan on visiting.
Non-venomous snakes have teeth, just like the venomous variety. So even in the case of a bite from a non-venomous snake, care should be given to watch for infections, as with any small injury. Bites from large non-venomous snakes can also be devastating – some large python and boas are able to cause massive lacerations requiring urgent medical care.
Our Advice: It’s best to leave all snakes alone, just like any wildlife. They have their place in nature and would certainly prefer to leave us alone as well.
