any snakebite needs emergency medicine and evaluation. identification of fang or bite marks is done, even if the snake is nonvenomous, to determine local trauma or tissue damage at the site of the bite. identification of the snake type by description or picture, along with the circumstances of the bite and the surrounding environment usually provides the health care professional a working diagnosis. for example, a snakebite occurring in dry west texas is likely a rattlesnake bite, while a snakebite in a swampy area of the u.s. is likely a water moccasin, and tiger snakes (body has bands of colors) are found mainly in australia and its costal islands. a zookeeper or private snake owner/collector who is bitten will likely know the exact type of snake that caused the bite or toxic spray (spitting cobras). medicinenet.com
