Re: Urgent - Suspected Adder Bite

Could the swelling have simply been an allergic reaction to a non venomous snake bite? i.e. juvenile Mole Snake? or possibly swelling from some idiot trying to suck the venom out of a dry/non-venomous bite?

He really clobbered that thing when he landed on it.
I really think that snake is stunned when his is tailing it on the rocks, or half drowned!

Re: Michigan Herpetology

Last weekend, I was hiking in Western Michigan and flipped a log over, next to a large lake.

Rana clamitans
or Green Frog was hiding underneath.

Misinformation about the state of wildlife in Africa?

Hi, I'm in the United States, we see documentaries all the time about how rare and endangered everything is over in Africa. I thought I would ask on a S. Afrika forum, what your opinion is of this. Are we being fed misinformation, or is it truly in a bad state over there? (Note:) I have read 'Death ...

Re: Snake nearly claims childs arm

Also, some rattlesnakes are producing venom with Neurotoxic properties. I believe the Mojave rattlesnake is one of these. Abstract Study objective: To report the effectiveness of a new polyvalent crotalid antivenom on neurotoxicity associated with North American rattlesnake envenomation. Two syndrom...

Re: Biggest Retic in SA ?????

Zookeeper- Did you see the link I posted? It is ridiculous. I was there 2 years ago (Columbus Zoo) Fluffy sits in a coil in the glass enclosure, her body vibrates as if she is incubating eggs, but there are no eggs. I don't know if it normal or not, but I didn't see her move. The crowds were ridicul...

Bob Clark's 'Biggest Snake in Captivity' is Fluffy, on display at the Columbus Zoo, in Columbus Ohio, here in the states.

I'm not saying it IS the biggest, but it is billed that way.

Re: Michigan Herpetology

Here is another photo of the Garter Snake i caught a couple weeks ago. It looks like he was getting ready to shed in this photo. See the eyecap. It also might explain why I caught him in the open, and even after I released him, the next day, he was right back in the same spot. garterclare2070409.jpg

Re: Classic Snake Books

Pythonodipsas

Thanks for the info. For the record, I am looking for books to read, not necessarily for collecting.

In other words, CHEAP!! I think I got my 'SNAKE MAN' book on ebay for $5.00.

Same with Death in the Long Grass by Hathaway.

Re: Michigan Herpetology

For Diversity- I'd agree and say the Southwest(Airzona, New Mexico), or Florida. For numbers I'd have to say Florida, there are lizards literally every couple meters there. Sure you might get 1000 Garter Snakes Hibernating together in Canada or Northern U.S., but you could easily say there are 1000 ...

Classic Snake Books

Any tips on titles or authors to look for when searching for old books? I'm talking about early Africa Explorations, explorers finding snakes, venomous and/or giant, in a vain similar to Ionides- Snake Man, but more Exploration-Centric instead of Character-Centric. Also books by any of the Africa's ...
