• The red-bellied black snake
The red-bellied black snake is found most widely in eastern Australia, and is indeed harmful. Although its bite is rarely lethal, it can cause significant bodily harm and discomfort. Any snake identified as a red-bellied snake should be approached only by a professional. With an average length of 1.75m, coming across the snake can be scary. You should not approach the snake, or attempt to engage it in any way; it will only attack if it considers you to be a threat. Red-bellied black snakes are common in woodlands as well as urban areas throughout eastern Australia.
• The mud snake
The mud snake, on the other hand, is a non-venomous snake found in the southeastern areas of the United States of America. The snake is thin with an average length of 1.2 meters. It tends to live near lakes or swamps and have a diet of aquatic, amphibious small creatures such as frogs and fish. Although the snake is unlikely to harm a human in any way, caution is still required when dealing with the snake and it should not be approached or touched.
