What kind of snake is this?!! - Page 3
venomous non venomous
copper head (venomous) (unknown)
Link of all sorts of snake venomous and non venomous snakes maybe you can find it in these
There is a couple of flaws in the above picture examples. The top left hand snake is a non-venomous juvenile tree python. The snake in the top left hand corner appears to be a black mamba which is of course extremely venomous. In native species it might be true that elongated pupils and pits around the mouth indicate a venomous snake, but that is not true of non-native species. Many species of pythons (such as the one above) have pits. A lot of non-venomous species have slitted pupils. My boas all of elongated pupils and of course are not venomous. Coral snakes do not have pits or slitted pupils and are venomous. That is not a very reliable way to tell the difference as indicated by the top two snakes.
Pretty much the only venomous snakes with slitted pupils are vipers. Cobras, Mambas, Taipans, Boomslangs, Sea Kraits, Tigers, Eastern Browns, Feirce snakes, etc....all extremely venomous, all round pupils.
(And please for heaven's sake, don't trust sources that refer to snakes as "poisonous" rather than "venomous". They are almost always made by people with little understanding of reptiles in general.)
