    Just to satisfy my curiosity on the matter, are these brown snakes in any way related to the brown snakes that managed to find their way to Guam from, it is presumed, Southeast Asia via air transport, and have subsequently decimated the bird population of the aforementioned island? I don't believe they are because I didn't think those in Guam were venomous, but I could be wrong on that point.

    We are insuring our dog for this very reason. She likes playing with them too much.

    Its a strange death.

    They get bitten then collapse. They then get back up and run around like normal. An hour or so later they collapse and start to die.

    The vets here have it down to a fine, but expensive art to test for the poison and treat it. My cousin works for a vet, and during summer snake bites are big business.

    No
    The snakes in Guam are brown tree snakes
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brown_tree_snake
    Theyre venomous but its pretty mild. Theyre rear fanged so they really have to chew on you. Ive been tagged by a few. Swelling and pain for an hour or so. Theyre really super agressive when confronted.

    The browns Tengu was talking about were most likely
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_brown_snake
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pseudonaja_nuchalis

    or

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pseudechis_australis

    My moneys on the Eastern.

    No but they more then likely came from Straya.
