Boomslang still

Hi there David. Okay I'm no scientist, but I grew up in a Boomslang area. Look, Africa has pretty miserable toxic animals not to mention all the other wild stuff we come across here. My husband goes around giving guinee fowl mouth to mouth when he finds them in traps. The Africans caught him doing t...

Hi Linn

Nope, not a pit viper - actually I see they DO call it a type of viper??? - doesn't have a diamond shaped head though, dunno if that's obligatory for vipers and adders. Simply a tree dweller as I see it. Actually it's got that long smile that the Mamba's have This is how I remember it as a child. Do...

Not so quickly funnily enough

LOL Actually it's not a laughing matter. There was a doctor who fiddled with this beautiful arborial snake and got bitten, perhaps 10 years ago or so. Must check it out. So he got the dizzies and the antivenin and the right hospitalisation etc. Next day he walks out there, says he feels a million do...

Boomslang still

Hi guys, Now you're talking! We're into DROPS. Much more refined.... The Mamba will pump an intravenous drip's worth of liquid into you, so you die without help, it stands to reason. If you should consult a really goodly Herpatologist, and he should give you the choice of 2 drops into even a muscle....

David - Hi

I promise you, it's the Boomslang. Have you seen the Mamba? We see it - it is actually huge = very long. We have a green Mamba as well, which is of enormous value to scientists as it has around 23 different types of venom all in one. But people are rarely killed by it. Black mamba pushes a HUGE amou...

Nahh, not true

Hi there, The MOST posoinous snake in the word (not based on being most fearsome, aggressive, amount of deaths, amount of venom injected) is DROP for Drop, the venom of the South African Boomslang (Dispholidus typus). Don't know of any deaths as it is arborial and extremely shy. Has thankfully very ...
