Here’s a handy guide to some of the snakes you may run across while gardening and hiking this season.
Signal boost for that time of year, and because there are too many people on tumblr who CANT TELL.
Good read, also a quick aside: just because you have identified a snake as venomous is not a good reason to kill it… venomous snakes are important parts of the ecosystem too.
If you find a venomous snake while hiking or in some area that isn’t urban, just leave it be, it will not bother you! If you find a venomous snake somewhere like your back yard, remove other people and pets from the area and call somebody who can relocate the animal!
There is almost never a valid reason for killing a wild snake, venomous or not!
I’m gonna add some addendum to this
because really that tail check is ridiculous please do NOT get that close to a snake you don’t know
The unfortunate part of this list is that nearly every nonvenomous snake out there will try to flatten it’s head to look like a viper to scare you off.
A better test: does it have a triangle head AND is it short and fat (and does it have slit eyes but I don’t expect anyone to get that close)?
Let’s test this:
(harmless, not short and fat. source)
(WE HAVE A WINNER! You can see fat, triangle and cateye. source)
(harmless! fat, but this hognose is clearly not trangley. source)
(both, both is good. source)
The only reason a venomous snake isn’t gonna meet the ~viper criteria~ is if it’s a coral snake, at which point you just memorize the old rhyme of choice.

I need that $200 smartphone and all the shiny apps to distract me from the searing pain in my ass from getting fucked so hard by student loans and the economy.
I don’t even make 15k a year right now. Ugh.
Dude I live off of $7,000.
Finished with this, played with light reflections in a little more subtle a manner. Was really fun with the blue skin. Cropped down a little since I think I gave him too much hair o.o Also how do nose.
Anyway, enough self-criticism! Zaloc belongs to Sal.
I guess it could even be a set with the Qell one I did, lulz.
I have too much fun with the KOTOR savegame editor
If you’re going to go on and on about how you can’t stand RPers who don’t try to stay within universe and species lore, because you always “make an effort to ensure” that all of your characters do, it’s probably best if you don’t then start talking about how your character is a Chiss woman who…
