My concern would be more about proximity. If I am close enough to breathe on a snake, I am close enough to get bit. Non venomous I wouldn't be too scared of, but thoughts of laying down close enough to a rattlesnake...I think I'd stay a little farther away.
Well...you don't have to really breathe on it...just blowing towards it is fine. The scent molecules will easily waft a meter or more, unless you're wearing a mask or have lung capacity issues. It's kind of like this, just less directed and powerful:

Thank you, that is a great piece of information and I look forward to trying that. I just have to make sure not to do that to a venomous snake.
Or one of these ...


They are also venomous.

Sounds scary :unsure:
Could try a long piece of garden hose :p
Not to whack it with, to blow lovingly on the dear things head.

Some Wife!
I know one that would blow it with something else. Causes arguments here!

Dan, almost all the land snakes in the USA are non-venomous.
Almost every variety here is deadly poisonous, and one of the other two swallows you whole. I think that our green tree snake is non-venomous ...
