Most snakes that are poisonous have pupils that are similar to a cat's; an oblong shape with peaked ends, like a slit in the center of the eye.

Snakes that are not poisonous usually have round pupils.

However The coral snake, which is a very venomous poisonous snake in the United States, has round pupils.
