Many species of venomous snakes are what are known as "rear-fanged". Their fangs are on the back of their mouth, and much like a Gila Monster, they have to really gnaw on your to envenomnate you.

It's a good job snakes don't have to keep quiet and bite their tounge, really

Most snakes would prefer you leaving them alone and not stepping on them.......they really don't want to bite you......it's only a protective response......if you get close enough (hahaha) the venomous ones' pupils are elliptical () and the non-poisonous are round shaped like ours O....... a wildlife biologist who lived in our neighborhood and snatched a hog-nose snake out of one of my ficus trees informed us as I thought it was poisonous due to its triangular-shaped head....next time you visit your reptile house at the zoo check out the snakes' eyes.....it's true......

I just learned that Bill Murray's three brothers are also actors. I have seen them in a few things and didn't realize they were his brothers.

The Coral Snake is an exception to this, if I remember right. That snake, while venomous, has round pupils.
