  "colubrid" venom research
However this family is not a natural group and actually seven or more families that are in some cases far far more closely related to elapids than they are to other 'colubrids'.
However, this is an artificial term that is evolutionarily misleading, it is in fact the same venom gland as the one found in cobras and rattlesnakes.
Like just about every other 'colubrid' they have a venom gland and their venom is rich in neurotoxic 3FTx.

  Pigtails, Curls and Whorls
The colubrid snakes are a widespread and common group of serpents found around the world.
A few of the colubrids are venomous, but all of the constricting colubrids are completely harmless.
When scared, most constricting colubrids will vibrate their tail, an act that can make them sound like a rattlesnake if the tail is in dry leaves or grass or up against hard rocks, but the bull, pine and gopher snakes take this mimicry to a whole new level.

Typically, colubrids have belly scales as wide as the body, and the upper and lower jaws bear teeth.
None of the teeth are hollowed to serve as poison fangs, but in some species (rear-fanged snakes) the teeth at the back of the upper jaw are enlarged and grooved along the front surface to conduct venom.
The majority of colubrids reproduce by laying eggs (oviparity), but the young of many species are born alive.

 Colubrid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A Colubrid (from Latin coluber, snake) is a snake that is a member of the Colubridae family.
While most colubrids are non-venomous (or have venom that isn't known to be harmful to humans) and are normally harmless, a few groups, such as genus Boiga, Coluber and Rhabdophis, can produce medically significant bites.
In addition, the Boomslang and African Twig Snake have both caused human fatalities.The venom-injecting fangs associated with venomous colubrids are almost always in the back of the mouth, compared to vipers and elapids.

The Venom Analysis Laboratory (Mackessy and students) at the University of Northern Colorado, using a variety of methods in protein chemistry, is at the forefront of research regarding venomous snakes from the family Colubridae (Hill and Mackessy, 1997; Hill and Mackessy, 2000; Mackessy, 2002a & b).
One of the goals of our work with colubrid venom toxins is to determine the amino acid sequence of specific toxins; this information allows one to determine how protein structure affects biological activity.

Many people are under the impression that hatching the eggs of snakes is more complicated than it really is. For North American colubrid snakes such as king, milk, and rat snakes), the procedures are really quite simple.
Most colubrids take about 60 days to hatch if the temps are in the low eighties.
Most colubrid eggs take about sixty days to hatch (a little longer if they are incubated at cooler temperatures).

Some data suggests that failure to hibernate colubrids consistently may increase the risk for ovarian or uterine disease in female snakes.
Recent research has also shown that the maintenance of these animals in captivity under so-called "ideal" indoor conditions may produce snakes which can be physically inferior and behaviorally abnormal.
