For those of you who love snakes as much as I do (total chicken), I wanted to share the latest information on how to try to stay alive in the event you have a negative encounter with one of these "Dangerous Snakes". You are not very likely to encounter one of these smaller Dangerous Game animals, but.... I live in a lovely cold climate where the snow and ice manages these potential threats quite well for me. In fact, there is a grand total of two critters that can envenomate me where I live and they are very unlikely to have enough venom to kill someone my size. I could very rarely encounter anything that can envenomate me and thus I am very inexperienced with these critters and have a developed fear out of ignorance. You can download the Poster for quick reference (pdf file) and have a look at the post in the thread below for some basic information The site is a wealth of information about Snakes in Southern Africa. Free Posters from the harmless snakes to the potentially dangerous variety. Handling Courses, First Aid Courses, and much more. I like to try and educate myself about the wildlife I might encounter as best I can and certainly the wildlife that is in the Dangerous Game category. To that end, I have recently been introduced to the latest updated information from the African Snake Institute. This is the link to their website http://africansnakebiteinstitute.com/books.htm In ebook format, paper and there is an App available for purchase. (various formats, Apple iTunes screen shot) Stay safe and informed.
