Friendly Snakes Vs. Not So Friendly Snakes… Identifying Venomous Snakes in the United States
Snakes are everywhere right now, see how to identify the bad snakes and see how the good snakes are not as good or nice as you may think!
I know for sure I have a snake den on my property, they are only Garter snakes but still, with children around I did some digging to see if the so called good guy of snakes was actually that good. Some species of Garter snakes have a mild form of toxin in their venom but are unlikely or able to bite humans, but a small child with softer skin could probably get penetrated by a snakes fangs.
I found a really great, in depth article that explains all the venomous and non venomous snakes and how to recognize and handle them. This is great knowledge to have in your back pocket in the event you ever do get a snake bite it is in your best interest to tell the hospital what snake it was so you get the correct anti-venom as quickly as possible.
