    Well, the good news is that there are eighteen species of nonvenomous snakes in PA while there are only three of venomous ones. The venomous ones can be recognized by their eliptical eyes and a small pit between nose and eye. But I personally wouldn't stay around long enough to examine the animal. By that time it might have bit.
