Anonymous entry[edit]

The japanese tiger snake and the peruvian false viper have also caused deaths. There's also a colubrid in Europe that has killed some people, genus Malpolon.

Dipsadinae incertae sedis?[edit]

Either they belong there and are incertae sedis, in which case a further subdivision into tribes is necessary. Or they are generally incertae sedis, in which case they don't belong in the Dipsadinae or only tentatively so. Dysmorodrepanis (talk) 06:47, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

This page needs an anatomical drawing of the head showing the location of the fangs[edit]

Would make the location of the fangs clear to those who are not anatomically sophisticated...Avram Primack (talk) 15:38, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

I've added a link to the snake dentition page. That should do it. Mokele (talk) 16:17, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Move proposal[edit]

Would anyone object to moving this page to "Colubridae," which would be in-line with all of our other articles on snake families? Also, fully two thirds of all articles that link here do so via the Colubridae redirect anyway. Cheers, --Jwinius (talk) 01:31, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Go for it. Mokele (talk) 01:40, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

Fang Location[edit]

The article makes this claim:

These are unlike those of vipers and elapids, which are located in the front.

This is contradicted by the article on elapids, which describe them as rear-fanged snakes. Could somebody with access to the source please clear this up? —MiguelMunoz (talk) 22:48, 11 January 2016 (UTC)
