Venom means nothing.
I play with night snakes which are suppose to be mildly venomous but the venom isn't enough to kill a human being.
It's only in regions that are heavily concentrated with venomous creatures (specific kinds of venom that are dangerous) that's likely to kill you if you don't get treatment where you should be worried etc.
I know in California there have been a lot of scare when it comes to snakes.
There's a recent insurgency of "Mojave Rattlesnakes" that have been invading areas where other rattlesnakes live etc.
Since these guys are deadlier than other species of rattlesnakes, people are killing snakes left and right.
The night snake, the gopher snake, and a few other snakes sometimes are mistaken for small rattlesnakes.

Last year I took this picture of this King Cobra in Marrakech up close.
Sounds like a snake exhibition???
Snakes can be scary sometimes point blank particularly if they take you by surprise.
But what kind of surprised me the most was the first time I saw a "Spider Wasp".
I was staring at a hairy small-medium sized tarantula when all of a sudden I saw some big black blob crawl/walk towards it.
My God. One or two stings later within a second or two it started dragging it across the trail.........
I felt like double KOing both of them to get rid of the misery in the tarantula.
But then again I thought I would be disturbing nature.
