snake blood?

I've been searching for nearly hour and I can't find out what colour snake's blood is! I need this for a book I'm writing, and I was wondering if anybody could help?

Any creature that has blood- isn't it made up of the same thing? Plateletts, red white blood cells, water, etc? I'd guess red like humans, but it my guess.

Reptiles, canines, felines, equines, amphibians... they all have the same colour blood. As jncoclub mentioned, it's all madeup with the same components.

hemoglobin is what makes it red..... veins have blue blood because there is no oxygen in them it has been consumed by muscles or organs but other then that its blue

humm.. Not All reptiles has red blood....


"Papua New Guinea is often billed as ‘The Land of the Unexpected’ and it is certainly that. Five small species of skinks with green blood are found here, the only green-blooded land vertebrates in the world. "

Found on the Mark O'shea 's website:
http://www.markoshea.tv/series2/series02-04.html

"In 1968 research into the blood of green-blooded skinks determined that the colouration was due to the presence of a biliverdin-type pigment, like that found in bile. Mark has a theory that this may make the lizards taste bitter and deter predators, a once tried, never repeated experience for lizard-eating birds."

Wow that really shows the diversity of reptiles.... The bile must have a overwhelming strength of color to over take hemoglobin.....
