    I find a chameleon snake to be stupid.... sure it can change colors but there are thousands of squids that comunicate by flashing and quickly changing colors. Also there is no such thing as a poisonous snake, i believe they mean venemous

    -agree with dgrower.

    thanks for showing this interesting discovery of a "poisonous snake"

    It's not a matter of which species does it best, but that the occurence of a trait in multiple groups that are only distantly related means we can glean insights into why and how such a trait evolved in the first place.

    Actually, there are poisonous snakes:
    Discovery of poisonous (not venomous) snakes

    The short version is that these particular garter snakes each newts which secrete tetrodotoxin, and have evolve an immunity. However, it still accumulates in them, possibly to levels that would make the snakes themselves toxic to their predators.
