    I think this might be called "snakeberry", but i'm not sure. It might be a type of strawberry, it sure does look like one. It grows on a gound vine and had several green leaves and a red berry the shape of a strawberry. I always remember people telling me its poisonous, and not to eat it. Can anybody help me?

    Check out Duchsnea (Duchesnia) on Google under "images."

    Its a common weed. Not poisonous from what I've heard and it didn't kill me upon eating it.
