There are a few species that do have a mild venom...For the most part the venom is directly related to the diet of the snake. The rear elongated teeth are for puncturing the skin of frogs and toads. This being said..Most toads and some frogs contain toxins in their skin...Hence the mild venom of the hognose. The more potent the toxin of the snakes diet..the more potent the venom will be. Hope this helps..
:I have read that hogs are venomous but rear fanged. Exactly how potent is the venom? I've looked all over for the answer and can't find it anywhere. I assume that it would also be very very hard to actually get envenomated but one because of their small size. Any info will be great. thanks
