List of Venomous Snakes Family: Colubridae, Colubrids

The list of the venomous snake overview below is not to provide full and complex
taxonomy in terms of zoology and systematics. Instead, the purpose is to catalog the names of
known venomous snakes, as well as those, namely from the colubrid family (Colubridae),
capable of causing envenomation through bites, even though they may merely cause a local or
a very light affection. The list of potentially venomous snakes may not be comprehensive due
to the general shortage of information available. In addition, it features snakes that are known
to possess venom apparatus, but for which no envenoming has been described as a result of
rarity or a benign course.
