Nice job in any case, particularly in #2.
Rgarding post #2, exactly how do you determine if a snake is poisonous by looking into its eyes? Well, in my country it's easy. We have two kinds of snakes, a grass snake and a viper. The non-poisonous grass snake has a round iris like humans do. The viper has a "two-bladed" vertical iris unlike humans. But I don't think things are as simple as that with more than two kinds of snakes.

Antero, most of the poisonous ones in the states have the vertical iris in their eyes. If I'm not positive on a snake I won't get close enough to find out, I will keep my distance.
I'm no snake expert but when I live in an area where you can come across eastern diamond back, cotton mouth, water moccasin, coral snake and I'm sure there are a couple others you tend to keep an eye out for things.
