One good resource on the web is the Herps of Texas site (see the URL below). Many of the reptiles and amphibians are covered on this site with photos, range maps, and descriptive info. It's organized by scientific names but has the common names also, so you should be able to browse around and find what you're looking for. In terms of potentially dangerous snakes, check the southern copperhead, western cottonmouth, and the coral snake. Most of the snakes you'll find will be harmless, though some of the areas around Tyler have pretty healthy populations of copperheads.
