A new species of snake in the genus Contia (Squamata: Colubridae
) from California and Oregon.
The market for the Colubridae

Although there are some types belonging to the Colubridae
family, which contain toxins dangerous to humans, only those belonging to the Viperidae and Elapidae families pose great danger to humans.
Malpolon (Coelopeltis) monspessulana belongs to the family Colubridae
(Bernhard, 1971) which includes the majority of living snakes.
Elapidae (including cobras, kraits, and all Australian venomous snakes), Lamprophiidae (subfamily Atractaspidinae: burrowing asps), and Colubridae
(a large family in which most species are nonvenomous and only a few are dangerously toxic to humans).
Venomous snakes belong to five main families: Hydrophiinae, Elapidae, Viperidae, Crotalidae, and Colubridae
(2004) Proteolytic, hemorrhagic, and neurotoxic activities caused by Leptodeira annulata ashmeadii (Serpentes: Colubridae
) Duvernoy's gland secretion.
Several examples of vertebrate predators switching to invasive prey include the previously threatened Lake Erie water snake, Nerodia sipedon insularum (Conant & Clay, 1937) (Squamata: Colubridae
), whose preferred prey is now the exotic Eurasian round goby, Neogobius melanostomus (Pallas, 1814) (Perciformes: Gobiidae) (King et al.
