6 beautiful pictures of colorful non-venomous snakes

Many of us are afraid of snakes. It is obvious: bites of these reptiles can be dangerous no matter whether they are venomous or not. However, if a non-poisonous snake bites you the injuries can be cured. Let's see how some of these species look like.


There are some distinctive features that will help to differentiate between poisonous and non-poisonous snakes. First, harmless snakes have a more rounded head and round pupils. You'll also see a visible line near their tail. Also, most of them lack heat-sensing pits. You might be surprised to learn that some of these snakes can be even useful! For example, they eat rodents that destroy farm crop. Let's take a look at these colorful reptiles and try to find these distinctive features.

Janice Turkovich Stewart, I am still afraid of snakes. There are wild snakes in Australia, where my daughter Tanya and her family live. Tanya and her family are fine and safe.

The safest and best policy is too treat all snakes as deadly, and keep out of their way .

Very beautiful in color. We had a huge Bull snake that lived at the nuisance grounds (dump) which kept the rat problem down. It was there for years. No one every bothered it.

I was a fencing contractor and farmer, here in Australia. We have the most venomous snakes in the world. Even though they are very common, I rarely came across snakes when working. They move away from vibrations and so if you don't creep around you wilfrighten them off just by doing your thing.

Speaking from practical experience, I can report that a live snake's skin feels distinctly pleasant. People with a phobia about snakes really ought to give it a try and find out that these creatures aren't so frightening after all.

Picture number 1 is not a Burmese python. It is a ball python. Two very different pythons. The Burmese gets roughly 13-16 ft long and can weigh up to 300+ lbs. The ball python doesn’t normally get longer than 4-5 ft and weighs only 4-5 lbs. By the way the 4-5 ft are females and most males are lucky to reach 3 ft.

I had my first encounter with a corn snake when I was 8 yrs. Later on, a friend had a boa named Iggy(after Igor Stravinsky). That friend gave me a pair of fox snakes. All very interesting. Then there was the day my brother swore we had a cobra in the garden. Turned out to be a hog-nosed snake. My snakes used to curl up in the towel wrapped around my wet hair. Neat critters

Like all wild creatures they all have an important job to do. If you find out what it is animals like snakes and insects will bother you a lot less.
