Although some snakes are poisonous, most of them are not poisonous. The problem is, if you don’t know which are poisonous and which are not, you could get into trouble… potentially deadly trouble.
If you are unsure, it is safest to assume that the snake is poisonous and call an experienced snake catcher to safely remove the snake.
All snakes are carnivorous, or meat eaters. Their diet includes many small animals, like lizards, mice or rats, frogs, earthworms, birds, eggs, and even other snakes!
As a group, they’ve come up with creative ways to secure their next meal. Some snakes have a venomous bite, which they use to kill their prey before eating it. Other snakes kill their prey by constriction. Still others just swallow their prey whole and alive.
Despite most people being scared of snakes, they don’t normally go after people. Most will not attack humans unless startled or injured, preferring instead to avoid us.
Not all snakes are bad to have close to your house. The Texas Rat Snake is not venomous and provides excellent control for rats and mice around your house.
The majority of snakes are either non-venomous or possess venom that is not harmful to humans. For example, in Central Texas there are 37 different species, but only 6 are venomous to humans. Still, there are 45,000 snake bites reported annually in the U.S. Of those, about 7,000 are venomous bites.
Unfortunately, on an average year, 1-2 Texans die from venomous snake bites. Pit Vipers are the most common venomous snakes in Texas. They include the copperhead, cottonmouth and rattlesnake. Coral snakes are also found here.
