All seven venomous snake species belong to the same family, Viperidae or pit vipers. Pit vipers are the only snakes that have a pit on each side of the head between and below the nostril and eye. These pits serve as heat-sensing organs that allow the snake to find and strike warm-blooded prey. Pit vipers are the only Oklahoma snakes with retractable fangs. The fangs are used to inject venom for killing prey and as a means of defense. Pit vipers have elliptical pupils like cats and a single row of scales on the bottom of its tail behind the anus. A pit viper has one row of teeth on each side in the upper mouth. Heads of pit vipers are significantly wider than their necks. Pit vipers tend to have stocky bodies.
Oklahoma nonvenomous snakes, except for the Texas long-nosed snake, have two rows of scales on the bottoms of their tails behind the anus. Most nonvenomous snake species have round pupils like humans. Many nonvenomous snakes have two rows of teeth on each side in their upper mouths. and tend to have relatively slender bodies. The heads of most nonvenomous snakes are usually only slightly wider than their necks or are the same width as their necks.
