hi sara
the most common seen venomous type of uae is horned viper
remaining all are nonpoisonous.
if bit happened just wash throughly and wrap above the bit area
as early reach for medical attention
if possible bring the snake also for identification
but never waist time for catching snake
emergency care is needed
for further contact me
