So Will,
What school are you going to in order to get your masters in herpetology? Oh wait, I know, you are not. There is no such thing as a degree in herpetology. No Uni offers a degree program in herpetology. So, what is the next line of BS you are going to hand me?

On to venomous...
Show me one bit of literature where it states that in order to be considered venomous, the snakes needs to have hollow fangs. One little sentence will do. Can you provide one link where it states that rear fanged venomous colubrids are "toxic" but not venomous? If there has been an actual classification change, we really need to know about it and we need the literature to back it up.

Now, what are fangs...
Here is the dictionary definition.

fang
1 [fang]

noun
1.
one of the long, sharp, hollow or grooved teeth of a venomous snake by which poison is injected.

2.
a canine tooth.

3.
a tooth resembling a dog's.

4.
the root of a tooth.

5.
one of the chelicerae of a spider.
