just been to the reptile/pet shop i use in my home town and seen a mangrove snake very first time i have seen them since the came off the dwa list beautiful snake
they are a back fanged snake i think they got took off the dwa list because they have a poor delivery system for delivering the vemon plus i think they are not as dangerous as some of the venomous snakes on the market . but some one who keeps these might know more as im only guessing
This a joke?Boomslangs have the same mehtod of delivery however you would most definitely NOT wat to take one from one of those guys..
To add to Dan's post.Boomslangs have the same mehtod of delivery however you would most definitely NOT wat to take one from one of those guys..
Thats perfectly ok, there are new facts coming out all the time on 'rear fanged' snakes.Ok, sorry! I thought all back-fanged did the same thing-all the ones I know are colubrids so just assumed it worked the same...Sorry!
Wow! 'Mental note-avoid wild colubrids...':lol2:Thats perfectly ok, there are new facts coming out all the time on 'rear fanged' snakes.
There are a few more snakes that are very dangerous that are on the DWA, with some that are capable of serious envenomations that aren't currently on there.
The fang structures on the rear fanged are very varied with a few that have movable fangs. Also the venom delivery on some are varied with some coming out in fang sheaths, some just in the mouth and some in both. With some of the venoms being more potent than elapids (drop for drop) then there is lots more to learn about these snakes.
