:Yes except that the legislation is based on venom rather than danger.

That depends on the legislature. In the UK, all elapids, viperids and Atractaspis are regulated, but for colubrids, only certain species that have been shown to cause clinically significant envenomation - Dispholidus, Thelotonis, Rhabdophis, as well as Psammophis, Malpolon and Boiga dendrophila.

By and large, this listing based on evidence of clinical danger seems pretty sensible (except perhaps in the case of B. dendrophila), although many other aspects of venomous herp legislation in the UK are not...).

Cheers,

Wolfgang
